How to Get Rid of Mosquitoes?
Swatting away mosquitoes when they land hungrily on your skin is an ineffective form of mosquito control. If you're wondering how to get rid of mosquitoes, there are a few steps you can take to reduce their presence.
- Remove standing water from your property. Mosquitoes lay their eggs in stagnant water, so any source of water in your yard can attract these pests.
- Use DEET or another EPA registered mosquito repellent. If you're camping, hiking or partaking in another outdoor activity, mosquito repellent is recommended to reduce your chance of being bitten.
- Prevent mosquitoes from entering your home. Open doors or windows are the easiest way that mosquitoes find their way inside your house. Make sure that all of your doorways and windows are protected with screens.
- Hire mosquito control professionals to exterminate infestations. If the mosquito population on your property is out of hand, it's best to call in the pest control professionals.
Professional Mosquito Control
The best way to get rid of mosquitoes is with extermination. While repellent may protect you for a few hours, if there are mosquitoes around they pose a threat to you and your family. As known vectors for hundreds of diseases (some deadly), mosquitoes are considered the most dangerous pest in the world. Instead of taking a gamble on the questionable effectiveness of repellent, it's best to rely on a professional pest control company like Edge Pest Control and Mosquito Services.
