Have you taken a moment to consider what activities you’ll get up to this spring and summer? Warm weather means we are entering a season rife with outdoor living opportunities, and your yard is one of the best places to enjoy the best that this climate has to offer. From spending time out on the deck to grilling for your family and guests, summer is a great time to kick back, relax, and enjoy the respite from the cold we endured for so many months. However, not all is sunshine and daisies when summer returns. As soon as temperatures consistently reach 50 degrees Fahrenheit and above, mosquitoes begin to emerge, and we are quickly approaching this threshold. So, what kind of options are available to keep you defended against mosquitoes this spring and summer? For much of human history, we have sought out ways to keep mosquitoes away, both to defend against the diseases they carry as well as their annoying bites. While some methods were predictably bizarre and based on unscientific methodologies, some ancient methods worked and still work to this day?
One of the best ways to keep mosquitoes away with natural ingredients is by using essential oils. Why are these oils effective? Mosquitoes use a surprisingly complex array of sensors to detect prey, including their equivalent to smell. When oils like citronella (which is commonly found in mosquito repellent candles), lavender, and others are applied to your outdoor areas, there is evidence to suggest that the powerful smell obscures a mosquito’s sensors. That’s why planting lavender, citronella grass, marigolds, rosemary, and other herby-smelling plants can have tangible benefits for mosquito control in your yard.
While these methods certainly help, there is only one way to ensure your yard is defended against mosquitoes.
