Mosquitoes are not only annoying, they are also capable of spreading a number of diseases. As such, keeping them out of the home is a top priority. Let’s take a look at the methods that you can use to keep your home mosquito free.
Killing and repelling mosquitoes
There are plenty of products on the market that will make it easier to kill or repel mosquitoes. From sprays, to candles and traps, you can find pretty much everything you need to keep these insects at bay.
Sprays are a popular option, and they can be used both indoors and outdoors. Some products in this category will kill mosquitoes and others will repel them, with some options on the market having the capability to keep an outdoor space mosquito-free for up to 12 hours.
You can also buy candles that are made with essential oils to drive mosquitoes off the property. These candles add atmosphere and smell nice. Mosquito traps are usually electric and they will draw in mosquitoes and kill them on contact. Finally, there are personal repellents. These are usually sprays that you can apply to yourself.
Sprays and repellents are good temporary solutions, but if you want to get rid of mosquitoes long term, you will need to work with a pest control pro who will destroy the infestation located on your property.
Infestations are usually caused by standing water, where the mosquitoes will lay their eggs and grow their young until they reach adulthood. To remove all the mosquitoes from the property, it’s important to find these sources of standing water and either treat them or remove them.
Other measures will only offer temporary relief and protection, and while you can use them to keep mosquitoes out of your home and away from certain areas of the property, if you really want to remove an entire mosquito population, you have to go to the source.
This is how pest control professionals will approach the mosquito control procedure. Once the bodies of standing are treated or removed, all you have to do is make sure that they no longer pop up in your backyard, and your property will be mosquito free.
