Reducing and Controlling Mosquitoes
Each summer, we endeavor to spend more time enjoying the outdoors. Typically, something will get in the way of this. More often than not, our experiences are marred by pesky mosquitoes. While many stinging or biting insects can be an annoyance, mosquitoes are ones which can cause serious health problems, such as malaria, West Nile virus, encephalitis, or even yellow fever. A bevy of repellents and deterrents, each with a different application method, are available for you to use alone or in combination, so you can control these pests and have an enjoyable summer.

One of the most effective ways to control mosquitoes is to prevent them from breeding. Three of the four stages of a mosquito’s life cycle occur in water, particularly the egg laying. Females lay their eggs in standing water, and so if you eliminate this from your yard and garden, you can help diminish their numbers. Fill in any depressions which create hard-to-drain puddles, and remove any still water from your flower pots, trash can lids, and bird baths. Adding a wiggler, small fountain, or dripper to your bird bath not only enhances the item with sound to entice birds, it will also break the surface tension of the water so the eggs cannot thrive. Some natural, liquid products will break this tension as well, for an added layer of prevention.

Some lesser used ways to control or prevent mosquitoes are gaining popularity, thanks to their ease of application or environmentally friendly design. Welcoming the natural predators of mosquitoes to your yard, such as purple martins, bats, dragonflies, and frogs, offers a natural type of control. It also enhances the variety of wildlife in your area, for you to enjoy more species. Sound deterrents are another natural option for controlling insects plus other wildlife. These products generally emit high frequency sound waves, which interfere with the hearing of insects and animals, so they leave the area. Such control can be a boon to your outdoor fun, without damaging the environment.

For a larger area of control, granules which repel mosquitoes via scent have become increasingly popular. Many of these granular products are made from natural oils, such as lemon, garlic, and geranium, creating a scent combination which repels the insects without harming them. These can last for several weeks, and many can even be used around people and pets. Use these granules in combination with citronella candles for your evening gatherings, adding lovely scent to your outdoor fun. For thorough control before a party or campout, insect fogs may meet your needs. Using an electric or other motorized fogger will evenly spread microscopic particles of insect repellent throughout an area, offering lasting protection.

A combination of preventing and repelling mosquitoes with natural, sonic, and chemical methods will certainly allow you to enjoy more time outdoors, while diminishing the risk of mosquito borne illness. BestNest carries a wide selection of Mosquito Control products to help you meet your needs.
