Choose the Right Repellent
It sure is very practical to use one of the many mosquito and bug repellents that sold in the store. But how much do you know about the ingredients? Some ingredients found in these repellants can actual be harmful to you, your pets, your children, and even the plant life in your yard. Therefore, you need to look for a natural repellent. If you have time, you probably should try some homemade repellent recipes. You might fall in love with one.
Kill Them When Still Larvae
Mosquito larvae might be close to impossible to spot, but when you see a puddle of water or any dirty standing water, there is more of a likelihood that there are larvae growing. Remove these containers and seal them tight. If you have a pond in your garden, you can use a mosquito ring or remove the algae that grow freely in the water. These larvae feed on algae, so you need to cut their food supply as soon as possible.
Have More Natural Protection
Some animals and plants can serve as a natural mosquito repellent. You may want to consider having lemongrass or geranium in your yard. If you are adventurous or have a large yard, you might want to grow more fruit trees that will attract bats, which are natural predators to mosquitoes.
Don’t let the mosquito infestation in your yard stress you out. It only takes less than thirty minutes to make a mosquito repellant and spray them all over your yard. Of course, you also can buy one. Whether it’s a quick fix or a more long-lasting solution that you’re looking for, there are many ways to keep your yard mosquito free.
