Backyard Cleaning to Eliminate Mosquitoes

Home Improvement,Environment
Mosquitoes can be a nuisance to any yard during the summer months and especially in the fall season. Mosquitoes main breeding grounds focus on areas that hold or have water standing.

As a homeowner you should walk around your yard and remove any standing water to limit breeding areas for mosquitoes. Check flower pots, children toys and other objects that are around your yard and make sure they don't hold water.

If you're tired of going outside and getting bit by mosquitoes you should put on protect ant that has cutter or deet as an ingredient. However, these are only temporary relief methods and most of the time doesn't keep mosquitoes away.

One item that mosquitoes hate is garlic. Some say eating garlic will keep mosquitoes away, but that's just a myth. There is no real evidence that garlic will repel mosquitoes. There are some garlic barrier sprays on the market that work, but again you must spray every few weeks. A gallon of garlic barrier spray costs around $90.00 and will last during a mosquito season.

If they can't breed, the biting mosquito will disappear. Mosquitoes don't live very long so you will see a difference in 2-3 weeks if you hunt down and remove all the breeding areas

Remove Leaf Litter: Mosquitoes will breed anywhere that there is moisture, its not just bush, creeks, drains, and dams The most likely place they are breeding is in the leaf litter under your trees or accumulated on the edge of your fences and gardens. Leaf litter is also in your roof gutters- get up on the ladder and brush & flush your gutters clean.

Mow the Lawn - Mow the lawn close to the ground, and get the whipper-snipper onto all the weeds at your edges. High grass keeps in the moisture providing breeding sites.

Remove all containers that might retain water Here's a checklist: Empty drink tins, tyres, buckets, bowls and anything that traps water. Empty bird baths, kids play pools, and pets' drinking bowls regularly. Remove or check tarpaulins, covers, and black plastic used to control weeds. Make sure boats, dingies, canoes and wheel barrows are turned over so they don't catch water.

Pot Plants: Don't overfill pot plants, put sand in the overflow trays so it doesn't leave a breeding pool.

Leaking water: Fix outdoor leaking taps and hoses. Make sure your air-conditioner's water run-off does not collect in a pool.

Pools & Vents: Ornamental pools can be aerated or stocked with mosquito-eating fish. Put mozzie gauze around all the openings on your water catchment tank. Put mozzie gauze over the openings of drains, sumps, septic tanks, and vents.

Wet areas: If areas of your backyard remain wet or sodden after rain, then dig them up and put in sand and an ag-pipe drain. Mosquitos can breed in even temporary damp areas

To fight mosquitoes I recommend making sure there's no standing water around your properties perimeter. Also, take a visual of your neighbor's yard as well to look for the source of mosquitos. Inform them if you notice a lot of mosquitoes around a particular area.
