Mosquitoes can be a nuisance and harmful to humans, spreading disease and discomfort. If you’ve noticed them in your home or on your property, it’s important to keep them at bay and eliminate them. They can even spread diseases like malaria and the West Nile virus, so be sure to prioritize their removal.
To survive, mosquitoes need water for breeding and blood they suck as a good source. Female mosquitoes lay eggs often times in stagnant water, or in moist soil.
Mosquito Control Methods
Mosquitoes are attracted to stagnant water sources, especially if it’s filled with debris. Get rid of any stagnant water around your property to prevent mosquito breeding and eliminate them from your property. Areas known to have stagnant water include ponds, old tires, tree pots, clogged gutters, salt marshes, wheelbarrows with water, ditches, and catch basins. Also remove old, abandoned flower pots that can act as mosquito breeding zones. When removing or fixing the water sources, remember mosquitoes need just a few ounces of water to breed.
Clearing bushes and shrubs around your property to get rid of adult mosquitoes is a good idea, as they like the bushes because they can feed on nectar. Most adult mosquitoes are found in vegetation during the day, so cut long grass and overgrown weeds around your home.
Another method of removal is to spray residual insecticides on the bushes and shrubs, shaded areas, and trees on the lower limbs. Residual insecticides used for mosquito treatment include Talstar pro, Mavrik perimeter, and Bifen IT. The three insecticides are safe if used according to instructions, but if you’re not confident in your ability to safely use them, seek out a pest control professional.
