Get Rid of Mosquitoes - Do-It-Yourself

Mosquitoes can be annoying and they can be a threat to a person's health. They breed near standing water and are drawn to organic debris. There are some ways to eliminate mosquitoes.


Remove Stagnant Water  

To get rid of the breeding grounds be sure to empty water out of buckets, tires, and other things that are laying around the yard. Also empty out flowerpots and remove water from pool deckings. Pools can be treated with mosquito repellants to keep them away from the water.

Remove Adult Mosquitoes

Adult mosquitoes can be found in bushes and shrubs. Plant nectar is a popular food for them.  They are attracted to people by their body heat and a scent that is found specifically on human skin. Bushes should be treated with insecticides and kept trimmed. Try to avoid spraying flowers and when possible choose organic. A person can expect to see results in as little as two weeks.

Mosquito Repellents

There are a number of non toxic repellents that are safe and effective. Some of these will even mask the scent of humans. These repellents work between three and five days.

Professional Services

If a person is not able to remove the mosquitoes on their own  they can call in a professional company to remove these pests. Mosquitoes can be a real health hazard and should be taken care of right away.
