Mosquitoes Bringing You Down? What You Need To Do

Mosquitoes can ruin all your backyard fun this year, forcing you inside. If you have a lot of mosquitoes in your yard, the mosquitoes may be attracted to your yard for a number of reasons. For example, you may be giving them a nice place to breed. If you have a problem with mosquitoes taking over your yard and leaving you stuck inside for all of those warm summer nights, you need to do a few things. Read on for helpful tips.

1. Take Away Their Nesting Space

Mosquitoes like to nest in standing water, so if you have any at all in your yard, you need to empty the standing water to keep mosquitoes from nesting in your yard. Standing water can be found in flower pots and bird baths or in low areas of the yard or even a sandbox. Empty the standing water where you can in your yard, fill in the low spots, and empty those flower pots. Bird baths need a pump or something to keep the water moving around. The same goes for pools or ponds, if you have either in your yard. You need to add a pump to keep the water moving continuously.

2. Use Citronella

Citronella can keep mosquitoes at bay, so you can use citronella in a few different forms, including citronella candles, citronella plants, or even citronella spray. Use these to keep the mosquitoes away from the areas where you are going to be outside. Plant the plants around your patio or porch where you may be relaxing outside in the summer. Other plants that can help with mosquitoes are lavender or peppermint. Both smell great and are beautiful plants, so they have multiple benefits. These plants can keep other pests away as well, including spiders or ants.

3. Trim Your Landscaping

Lawns that are overgrown or landscaping that has a lot of overgrowth can be a breeding ground for mosquitoes. They can lay low in the taller grasses or plants during the day and come out during the evening hours. Trim back your landscaping and keep your grass mowed down to keep mosquitoes out of your yard. 

Mosquitoes may not seem like they would be too harmful, but when you have a lot of them around, it can force you inside quickly. Hire a pest control company like Insecta X for help with getting rid of these pests in your yard.
