Getting Rid of a Mosquito Infestation
Mosquitoes are one of those annoying pests that can ruin your family’s outdoor fun, keeping you from enjoying your own home’s outdoor areas. Many homeowners plagued by mosquitoes turn to outdated, mostly ineffective or uncomfortable alternatives when dealing with mosquitoes, such as citronella candles, bug spray, and over-the-counter pest products.
The problem with many of these solutions is that they don’t treat the underlying problems which cause the mosquitoes in the first place, and often these home remedies work only to a limited degree.

How to Get Rid of Mosquitoes
Here are some effective methods to get rid of mosquitoes:
- Remove standing water: Mosquitoes breed in stagnant water, so eliminate any sources of standing water around your home.
- Use mosquito repellents: Apply repellents containing DEET, picaridin, or oil of lemon eucalyptus to exposed skin when outdoors.
- Install screens: Keep doors and windows screened to prevent mosquitoes from entering your home.
- Use mosquito traps: These traps attract and capture mosquitoes using various methods.
- Mosquito netting: Use netting over beds and cribs to protect yourself while sleeping.
- Trim vegetation: Keep your lawn well-trimmed and bushes pruned to reduce mosquito resting spots.
- Professional treatment: Consider hiring a pest control service if you're unable to control mosquitoes on your own.
