Mosquitoes

mosquitoMosquitoes are without a doubt one of the most dangerous and annoying pests that you can encounter, and definitely a pest you think of when you hear the phrase pest control.

Mosquitoes are known to spread a wide range of serious and deadly diseases such as dengue fever, malaria and west Nile virus. Having mosquitoes around not only is a nuisance but also represents a serious health issue.

How To Get Rid Of Mosquitoes

There are several different methods available for controlling mosquitoes. Some of these include:


•    Mosquito repellent
•    Mosquito spray
•    Mosquito traps
•    Mosquito zappers
•    Mosquito plants
•    Mosquito foggers

Mosquitoes’ preferred breeding sites are stagnant or standing water, such as the water that is left in basins and bins after a rain shower. One easy step towards controlling mosquitoes is making sure that there is never standing or brackish water around your property. You could say that eliminating these water sources is one natural mosquito repellent you can employ.

Because mosquitoes are airborne insects it is recommended to utilize a fog, or other aerosolized product, when you are combatting these bugs. Although topical applications can be useful as a mosquito repellent they are nearly useless when it comes to knocking out the adult mosquitoes that can spread illness.

Best Way To Get Rid Of Mosquitoes

The best mosquito killer you can buy is Talstar insecticide. You can apply this mosquito killer to any kind of plant or shrubbery in your yard (that does not produce anything edible) and it will provide protection for up to 30 days. Make sure to spray the underside of the leaves since this is where mosquitoes lay their eggs.

Natural Mosquito Repellent Plants

There are several plants you can place around your property that are supposed to repel mosquitoes naturally. Some of these include:

•    Ageratum
•    Rosemary
•    Mosquito Plants
•    Citronella
•    Horsemint
•    Marigolds
•    Peppermint
•    Lemon Balm
