How to Get Rid of Mosquitoes in Your Yard

It can seem like mosquitoes are omnipresent in the spring and summer in Central TN, but that’s only because they’re difficult to eliminate. If you’ve tried everything you can think of and they keep coming back, maybe it’s time to rethink your approach. You’ll have much more success by creating a treatment plan that’s tailored to your property. 

Some mosquito treatments you may consider include:

  1. Mosquito traps
  2. Mosquito netting
  3. Mosquito repellents
Exterminator spraying pesticides in trees

What's The Best Way to Get Rid of Mosquitoes?

For minor mosquito infestations, any of the above three methods may reduce or even solve the problem. However, for major mosquito infestations, you should hire a professional mosquito control company. This is because, to put it simply, mosquitoes are relentless once they’re established in an area. DIY mosquito treatments will likely only offer temporary relief. Mosquitoes don’t live long, but they reproduce quickly, so there are always more on the way.

The Bug Man takes a two-pronged approach by eradicating adult mosquitoes as well as their breeding areas. This way, the life cycle gets interrupted, and you get some longer-term relief.

How to Keep Mosquitoes From Returning

Once mosquitos are gone, the next step is preventing them from coming back. You do this by making your property less attractive to mosquitos.

Some of the best ways to do this include:

  • Getting rid of ANY standing water – even a tiny puddle is enough for mosquitoes to breed.
  • Covering spas, pools, and birdbaths – again, these are common mosquito breeding areas, so you don’t want to give them easy access.
  • Installing screens on windows and doors – this prevents them from bothering you when you’re inside.
  • Installing or utilizing fans – mosquitoes are terrible flyers and will avoid high-wind areas.
  • Getting a professional mosquito inspection and/or treatment before mosquito season – this can interrupt the mosquito lifecycle before things get bad, saving you a whole lot of frustration later on.
