4 Ways to Banish Bloodsuckers from Your Backyard!

Mosquito Control

With a little diligence, some planning, and being proactive, you can eradicate mosquitoes from your property so that you can fully enjoy your outdoor space all season long. Here are 4 ways to keep a mosquito-free environment.

1. Eliminate Standing Water

Mosquitoes' breeding habitat is stagnant water, so the first step in combating mosquitoes is to remove any standing water around your property. This may include emptying flower pots, buckets, and other containers that can collect rainwater that may stay stagnant. Regularly clean and refresh water in birdbaths and pet water bowls to prevent mosquito larvae from thriving.

2. Maintain Your Lawn

Mosquitoes seek shelter in tall grass and overgrown vegetation during the hottest parts of the day. Areas of your property that are overgrown or unkemp can create an environment where heavy infestation occurs. Keeping your lawn trimmed and tidy make it less appealing to these bothersome insects.

3. Use Mosquito-Repellent Plants

Nature offers some excellent mosquito-repellent plants that not only add beauty to your yard but also help keep mosquitoes at bay. Consider planting citronella, lavender, basil, mint, or rosemary. These plants release fragrances that mosquitoes find unpleasant, thus deterring them from invading your outdoor sanctuary.
