Natural Ways to Mosquito-Proof Your Garden

Most know how bloodsucking mosquitoes can disrupt outdoor activities, especially in parks, beaches, and hiking trails. These insects can cause serious conditions and diseases, including Zika virus, heartworms, West Nile infection, and malaria, to mention a few, in addition to being bothersome. If all these natural ways don't work, get the help of professionals from a pest control company.

Delete Any Areas That Might Serve As Potential Reproduction Sites

The ideal environment for mosquito reproduction is stagnant water. It offers a setting where mosquito eggs can develop in peace. Water can gather in unexpected locations, such as blocked drains, toys, pots, old tires, or other gaps in the yard where a small amount of precipitation can condense into a puddle. Mosquitoes may lay their eggs in even tiny pools of water the size of a 50-cent piece. Where they might assemble, we must remove or clear the water.

BTI dunks can be added to standing water as well. Long-lasting biological mosquito larvacide is released over time by Mosquito Dunks. This larvicide slowly dissipates into the water, where mosquito larvae consume it. Continued consumption of the active ingredient kills the larvae.

Get Rid of Mosquitoes Before They Fly

Mosquitoes have a limited range of motion. They fly slowly at around 1 to 1.5 miles per hour, depending on the species. These tiny pilots prefer calm, peaceful flying environments with many places to land. Tragically for us, these bloodsucking creatures may treat our gardens like a busy airport.

If you don't have the breeze blowing by naturally, put a big fan next to the area where the family or guests are seated to drive these annoying mosquitoes away and keep them from invading your haven. When there is simulated wind, mosquitoes are less inclined to fly in that direction. This might offer a simple answer. Mosquitoes can't withstand the wind since they are weak.

The more wind that blows through your garden, the better since tall bushes, dense foliage, and other barriers serve as mosquito windscreens and create favorable conditions for them.

Use plants that repel mosquitoes in your garden.

Use the garden area to plant mosquito-repelling plants to save money on citronella candles and store-bought insect repellent. When placed in containers or strategically placed throughout the garden, each of the plants described below can serve as effective all-natural insect repellents.

  • Basil 

  • Catmint

  • Catnip 

  • Citronella geraniums 

  • Garlic 

  • Lavender 

  • Lemon balm

  • Lemongrass 

  • Marigolds 

  • Peppermint 

  • Rosemary 

If the plants mentioned above are used in your garden, their essential oils can be just as potent as their planted equivalents. Concentrated solutions should be used cautiously as they may be dangerous to pets, children, and the elderly.

Take Care of Your Garden

Regular garden cleaning is essential to keep the area attractive and ward off insects. Mosquitoes are only about a quarter of an inch long, and they only require approximately two inches of leaves to feel secure enough to live there.
