How do you get rid of mosquitoes in your yard?

To get rid of mosquitoes in your yard, as a homeowner, you can eliminate areas of stagnant water around your property because mosquitoes tend to use these areas of collected water to lay eggs. This includes storing extra gardening containers in a shed or storage area where they won’t collect water and the same goes for kids’ toys and patio furniture that may become breeding grounds for mosquitoes. It only takes a bottle cap full of water to create ideal conditions for mosquitoes to lay eggs. Pet water bowls and birdbaths should be changed out every day to avoid stagnation. Be sure to check gutters and downspouts to ensure they are draining properly.

Areas with dense shrubbery make ideal places for mosquitoes to hide in the day time, along with shady and damp areas on your property. Repairing or replacing window and door screens makes a big difference in preventing mosquitoes from getting into your home. Plants, such as citronella and lemon balm, are said to help deter mosquitoes so it may be worth planting some of these as part of your landscaping.
