What Is Environmentally Friendly Mosquito Control?

There are mosquito control sprays that are derived from plants, but these products don't last long in your yard. Therefore, when we talk about natural ways to get rid of mosquitoes, we aren't referring to botanical products. We focus on control methods that have a long-lasting impact, such as the removal of mosquito breeding sites and attractants.

Here are some examples of ways you can get rid of mosquitoes and keep mosquitoes away with natural control methods:

  • Remove objects from your yard that capture water.
  • Clear gutters of obstructions.
  • Address conditions that create puddles in your yard.
  • Adjust tarps so that pools of water don't sit for more than a week.
  • Turn kiddie pools over when not in use.
  • Address weed problems to remove nectar and sap as a food source.
  • Replace exterior white lights with lights that cast yellow light.

These tips may take some work on your part, but it is well worth the effort to roll your sleeves up. There are many benefits to using methods that are environmentally friendly.

What Are the Benefits of Environmentally Friendly Mosquito Control?

The big benefit of environmentally friendly mosquito control methods is that they target the source of the problem. It is impossible to keep mosquitoes away from your yard entirely, so you have to target the reasons mosquitoes come into your yard, and how they reproduce in your yard. Environmentally friendly pest control does this in spades. While these methods won't give you complete control of mosquitoes or directly get rid of mosquitoes in your yard, it can feel like they do, as they will work to reduce mosquito populations and reduce encounters with mosquitoes.

How Mosquito Control Can Help

There are a surprising number of places where mosquitoes can breed, and it can be difficult to remove all breeding sites from most properties. For this reason, there is no better way to get control of mosquitoes than to have a licensed professional apply treatments to key areas on your property. Spraying for mosquitoes in your yard gives your property proactive protection from mosquitoes.

When a mosquito comes into your yard to lay hundreds of eggs, it won't live long enough to do it. Mosquitoes that rest in areas that have been treated will become exposed to the knockdown agent, which is only strong enough to impact simple organisms, like mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas. The goal of mosquito control isn't to keep mosquitoes away from your yard but to stop them in their tracks when they rest in your yard.

If you want to rid your yard of mosquitoes and keep mosquitoes away, spraying for mosquitoes in your yard is the best solution. You can do this along with, or apart from, natural mosquito control.
