How Do I Get Rid of the Mosquitoes in My Yard?

Author: Mosquito Squad of South Central Texas

April is pest management month and Mosquito Squad is here to give our best tips and trick to help keep mosquitoes out of your yard.

Tip over anything that could hold standing water. Mosquitoes only need a small bottle cap of water to lay their eggs. By tipping dog dishes, plant saucers and toy trucks daily, you will help reduce the population.

Turn over larger objects such as swimming pools or sand buckets once a week or after a rainfall to ensure standing water can’t gather. The more water you allow to remain around your property, the more likely you are to have mosquitoes.

Remove tarps from firewood, boats or sports equipment as frequently as you can. Because tarps are rarely touched mosquitoes can hide easier for laying eggs and creating a habitat.

Take care of your outdoor maintenance. Trim your grass, pick up leaves and sticks and make certain your sprinkler system is working properly. Mosquitoes prefer to rest is areas that aren’t often walked through which is why they zero-in on tall grass.

Treat your yard. Despite all of the great effort to reduce the population of mosquitoes, they typically still find a way into your yard. Mosquito Squad’s traditional barrier treatment will reduce 80-90% of the mosquito population at your home.

To see the best results for mosquito treatments, team up with your neighbors. Educating neighbors on tips and tricks for their own yard and suggesting Mosquito Squad can help benefit you and your entire neighborhood.
