Whether you enjoy backyard barbecues or backpacking, cycling or just sitting by the pool, summer is the time to enjoy the outdoors. Not only are mosquitoes a nuisance, but they can also carry diseases that pose a threat to your family’s health. There are some things you can do to reduce the mosquito population in your yard.
Mosquito Exterminator Techniques
What does the insecticide spray do? Adulticide sprays immediately kill flying mosquitoes. Larvicide sprays kill mosquito larvae that hatch from eggs and lasts longer than adulticide sprays. Both products will temporarily reduce mosquito populations in an area, but will not permanently get rid of them.
It is important to begin your mosquito control efforts as early as possible before the breeding cycle goes into full swing. Things you can do around your yard are: remove any standing water. Mosquitoes need water to breed. This can be flower pot bases, garbage can lids, coolers, even a stagnant birdbath.
Try to avoid being outside during peak mosquito hours – Mosquitoes tend to be most active at dawn and dusk, although specific hours may vary by species. Minimize your risk of being bitten by wearing long sleeves and pants if you are outside during these times.
Wearing scented oils mosquitoes dislike can be one way to keep them away from your skin (and your blood). One of the most famous scents that mosquitoes despise is citronella.
Scents that repel mosquitoes include the following: Citronella, Basil, Peppermint, Garlic, Rosemary, Lemon Balm, Lemongrass and Lavender.
