Can I Get Rid of Mosquitoes Without Professional Help?

In general, the best method of DIY mosquito control is limiting the things around your home that attract them. This means checking around for any standing water build-up because mosquitoes could use it as their breeding grounds. Cover or pour out still water in birdbaths, pools, planters, buckets, playsets, and more. You can also install oscillating fans around your outdoor patio to use wind as a repellent. These are two easy and effective methods of DIY mosquito control.

Are Homemade Mosquito Sprays Reliable?

If you have mosquitoes in your yard, you may be wondering if you already own anything that you can use to repel them. Many people like to use diluted essential oils as a mosquito spray. While these sprays can work to ward off mosquitoes temporarily, they are not a long-term solution to an outbreak. It’s always recommended to hire a pest control company that can recommend mosquito treatment options tailored to your yard.

Professional vs. Home Mosquito Treatment
