At Mosquito Authority, part of our mission in helping our customers get the mosquito-free spaces they deserve is to provide tips to eliminate pests from their properties. In addition to our array of mosquito control treatment options, we’re happy to offer practical solutions our customers can utilize to get rid of mosquitoes for good.
We approach mosquito control differently from other pest control companies. Our professional technicians employ a thorough four-step process to ensure we properly identify the problem and effectively treat your property with a completely customized solution.
As part of our process, we take the time to complete a comprehensive walk-through of your property to identify mosquito breeding grounds. There are several areas that can serve as potential breeding habitats for mosquitoes, and they’re often a good place to start when it’s time to eliminate these pests from your property.
Our mosquito control specialists will determine which mosquito breeding habitats exist on your property, like standing water, bushes, trees, and shrubs. When possible, we’ll eliminate the standing water, or if water cannot be removed, we’ll apply granular treatment to the existing water to prevent mosquito larvae.
After our professionals remove any standing water, they’ll apply our mosquito control treatments to any identified breeding habitats on your property. Our treatment solutions continue to eliminate mosquitoes on contact for up to three weeks. Based on the mosquito lifecycle, we’ll return to repeat the process every 21 days.
Let’s dive into some ways to remove mosquito breeding grounds from your property and stop these pests from ruining your outdoor fun.
How to Get Rid of Mosquitoes Around the House
Luckily, there are quite a few different approaches when it comes to practical methods you can use around your property and home to eliminate mosquitoes.
1. DUMP OUT ANY STANDING WATER AROUND YOUR YARD AND HOME
Mosquitoes only need a quarter of an inch of water to lay their eggs in, making standing water the perfect nursery habitat. Removing stagnant water from your property is a great way to deter mosquitoes from staying by eliminating mosquito breeding habitats.
To ensure all standing water is removed from your yard, you’ll want to check these common items that collect water and empty them weekly:
- Tires/tire swings
- Children’s toys
- Kiddie pools
- Flowerpot saucers
- Trash containers
2. CLEAN UP ANY LITTER IN YOUR YARD
As with the items above, you’ll want to clean up any litter in your yard. Since mosquitoes require little water to lay eggs in, removing even the smallest items and trash, like bottle caps and cans, prevents any habitats from forming.
3. GET RID OF YARD DEBRIS
In addition to water-collecting items and trash around your yard, you’ll also want to remove yard debris. Things like leaf piles, grass clippings, compost piles, and even thick vegetation can make for the perfect habitats for mosquitoes. Removing yard debris near your home can help keep mosquitoes at bay.
4. REGULARLY CHECK YOUR GUTTERS FOR CLOGGING
A hotspot for mosquito breeding that’s often overlooked is gutters. When leaves and sticks gather in your gutters and clog the drainage system, you’re opening the door to stagnant water and more mosquito-breeding habitats.
Best Way to Combat Mosquitoes
One of the best ways to eliminate mosquitoes and keep them away is by removing mosquito habitats and breeding grounds. When you hire a professional mosquito control company like Mosquito Authority, we include this as part of our comprehensive process because we know how effective this tactic can be.
