Reducing The Mosquito Population Of Your Property

A severe mosquito problem can pose significant challenges for your property, in addition to making it unpleasant to be outside. These pests can also carry diseases that can put you at substantial risk. Due to these challenges, mosquito prevention strategies may need to be employed by homeowners.

Eliminate Standing Puddles Of Water

Standing pools of water can be a major contributing factor to your property's mosquito problem. These pests will use the standing pools of water as breeding grounds. Eliminating them can make it much harder for the mosquitoes on your property to reproduced. If there are puddles of water that can not be eliminated, it can be possible to apply treatments to the water that will neutralize any mosquito eggs that could be laid in the water.

Utilize Catnip Plants To Deter Mosquitoes

Not surprisingly, many people will prefer to try and use natural solutions to keep mosquitoes away. In this regard, catnip plants can be extremely effective. The chemicals that these plants produce can drive mosquitoes from the area. Furthermore, catnip is a fairly hardy plant, which can make it easy to grow in most climates. However, if you have cats, these plants may be a constant target, and you may need to be vigilant about keeping these plants from being crushed.

Have A Professional Pest Control Service Treat The Property

Having a professional pest control contractor treat your property for mosquitoes is an option that can greatly reduce the prevalence of these pests on your property. These professionals will also be able to survey your property to determine the factors that are the biggest contributors to your mosquito problem. This information can be useful in devising a strategy to effectively reduce the mosquito population of your property.

Direct Fans On Areas Where You Expect To Spend A Lot Of Time

Unfortunately, it is simply not possible to completely eliminate all of the mosquitoes from your property. However, it can be possible to reduce the ability of these pests to reach you. In particular, these insects are generally unable to navigate windy areas, and this means that a few strategically placed fans can keep these pests from being able to reach you. If you are wanting to keep these pests from entering your home while still being able to enjoy leaving the windows open, positioning a fan to blow out the open window can greatly reduce the ability of a mosquito to make it inside.
