Mosquitoes have ruined many a gathering whether it be a park, a picnic or an outdoor shindig. However, there are things that you can do to chase off those pests and enjoy some time outdoors. 

1. Protect Your Skin With Skin Repellant

DIY mosquito control should always begin with finding an effective way to repel mosquitoes and avoid bites. You can do a good inspection of mosquitoes and observe their activity and behavior if you’re getting bit up all over the place. The first action to take in regards to personal control is to prevent mosquitoes from biting you. While it’s not possible to do that by trying to kill all the mosquitoes in a particular area you can use repellents to discourage mosquitoes from targeting you for their blood fix. There are some natural repellents you can use but merely consuming garlic or chives. The scent of these type of foods is off putting to mosquitoes and will naturally encourage the insects to avoid biting.

Aside from strong smelling foods, spraying an insect repellent on the skin before going outdoors can be a simple solution, but it should be used with caution. Always spray a small area and be sure that you are not allergic to the chemicals within the spray before applying a substantial amount all over your skin.  

2. Get Rid of all forms of Standing Water

Mosquitoes love standing water and use the stagnancy of the water as a perfect place to lay their eggs in the water. By reducing or removing stagnant water that is around your home, you can drastically reduce the mosquito population. This means emptying or covering that bird bath when it isn't in use and emptying out flowering pots and cleaning up puddles.

Stagnant water does not always mean that there is a water feature in the yard. Water can be captured in flowering pots, or pet dishes that have been left standing outside in the yard, yards which have poor water drainage, or any other container. Check for stagnant water in small containers to ensure that the insects are not breeding in the backyard.

3. Use Chemical Products

Spray the yard and any other location that is breeding the insects with an appropriate chemical product. ePestSolutions as a wide variety of mosquito products and equipment to choose from including mosquito misting systems, foggers, insecticide sprays and more.  These high quality professional products can kill the insects or repel them from a particular area so that they are no longer breeding in the backyard or causing problems. What type of product that is best recommended for your situation depends on the severity of the infestation. Generally, a small amount is appropriate when the insects are only located in a specific area. One great product we recommend to treat mosquitos include Talstar P or Bifen IT Insecticide

ePestSolutions experts recommend you use chemical products with caution. Follow the safety instructions that are provided on the label and use as directed. Make sure that pets or small children are not in the area while the chemical is being used. It may be necessary to keep children or pets out of the yard for a set period of time to avoid any potential health risks.

By eliminating the insects through the discussed methods, you can enjoy the outdoors again and not worry about those irritating bloodsuckers from being a bother.
