Mosquito Prevention Tips

There are steps that you can take to help prevent mosquitoes in your yard. Here are four things you can take on your own.

  • Use bug lights:
    Mosquitoes are attracted to certain frequencies of light and not all light. Understanding this means that you can avoid the swarms of mosquitoes and other insects that may invade your home and property. Choose yellow “bug lights,” sodium lamps and LED lights that will not attract mosquitoes.
  • Cut your lawn:

    Mosquitoes like shaded and protected areas. If you can keep shrubs and trees well-trimmed and remove low-lying vegetation and vegetation and your grasses short, you can decrease the moisture. You will also allow increased sun exposure and wind on your property which makes it less hospitable to biting insects and mosquitoes.

  • Eliminate Standing Water:

    Mosquitoes breed in standing water and simply emptying water from containers around the home can help. Look for and remove old tires, unused plastic pools. Cleaning your clogged gutters, changing the water in your bird baths and filling holes or draining puddles and swampy areas can also help.

    • Apply effective mosquito repellent:
      get rid of mosquitoes by using good repellents

      The Center for Disease Control has found that products that contain DEET are the most effective at repelling mosquitoes. If you cannot use DEET due to sensitivity to it, try finding products that use picaridin. You will need to apply it more frequently.


    While these actions can prevent mosquitoes, they do not result in dead mosquitoes. If you want to truly eliminate mosquitoes, you will need to have a professional apply a yard treatment. Mosquito Tek can apply an effective treatment that will really get rid of the mosquitoes in your yard. Our trained technicians can apply a barrier spray that will keep you and your family safe from the diseases that mosquitoes carry. Contact Mosquito Tek to learn more about our service options.
