There are some fairly effective ways in which you can get rid of mosquitoes in your yard. Here are four things you can start with:
- Get Rid of Standing Water
This can be as simple as emptying water from containers around the home. For example, homeowners can eliminate mosquito breeding grounds by removing unused plastic pools, old tires, buckets, clearing clogged gutters, changing water in bird baths and by filling or draining puddles, swampy areas and tree stumps.
- Clip Your Lawn
Mosquitoes roost in shaded, protected areas. Be sure to remove low-lying brush or vegetation, keep shrubs and trees well trimmed and grasses short. This will decrease moisture and increase wind and sun exposure on your property, making it far less hospitable to mosquitoes and other biting insects.
- Use Bug Lights
Mosquitoes are not attracted to all light, just light at certain frequencies. Most people do not take advantage of this knowledge, and so their homes attract swarms of mosquitoes and other insects every night. These people are forced to enter and exit their homes at break-neck speeds to keep the number of winged intruders to a minimum. Yellow “bug lights,” LED lights, and sodium lamps will not attract mosquitoes.
- Apply Effective Mosquito Repellent:
When it comes to getting rid of mosquitoes with repellents, repellents with DEET outperformed other mosquito repellents in lab and field testing conducted by the Center for Disease Control and the Environmental Protection Agency. For those with a sensitivity or aversion to DEET, products that contain picaridin are reasonable replacements, though they do not last as long as repellents containing DEET.
Unfortunately, even if you do all of the above to get rid of mosquitoes, it will not really result in dead mosquitoes. To TRULY get rid of mosquitoes you need to contact the professionals at Mosquito Tek to come and apply one of their effective mosquito yard treatments…that REALLY gets rid of mosquitoes!
