Like all pests, mosquitoes are attracted to certain things around your home that cause them to stick around. If you limit their access to their breeding grounds and food sources, you will see a significant reduction in numbers. Some of the best ways to get rid of mosquitoes are as follows:
Maintain Your Landscaping
Mosquitoes are drawn to cold, dark spaces. Hollow stumps, overgrown bushes and weeds give these insects places to hide and breed. Keep up with your home’s landscaping by getting rid of any unnecessary plants and stumps to reduce the number of areas these insects can call home.
Get Rid of Standing Water
There is nothing more likely to attract mosquitoes than standing water. These insects breed and lay eggs in stagnant water, so cleaning out gutters, emptying buckets and checking bird baths is a great way to get rid of any unwanted mosquito breeding grounds around your home.
Treat Water Fixtures
Some water features around your home that contain stagnant water are wanted, however, so make sure things like pools and ponds are treated to avoid attracting these pests. For pools, you can drain them in off-seasons and treat them with chemicals during the summer. Another tip is to consider introducing mosquito-eating minnows to significantly reduce the number of mosquitoes in and around your pond.
