Finding effective backyard mosquito control methods can be much easier than most people realize. The key to reducing the number of mosquitoes around your home is to work with a combination of tactics that all act together to keep them at bay.
Here are some options you might try around your home:
Take a close look around your backyard and see if find standing water where mosquitoes breed. This can include bird baths, ponds, gutters around the roofline, rainwater downpipes, and even drains with exposed openings. If you find anything like this, get rid of it or amend it. Tip bird baths regularly and circulate water in ponds by adding a fountain or waterfall.

Both of these systems are effective, offering protection against mosquitoes and ticks.
