Helpful Tips for Keeping Mosquitoes Away

Helpful Tips for Keeping Mosquitoes AwayMosquitoes are not only horribly obnoxious, they can also create health hazards by spreading disease. In fact, globally, mosquitoes are the deadliest animal to humans, causing approximately 1,000,000 deaths per year due to spreading diseases. But even if the mosquitoes in your backyard aren't harboring deadly diseases, they can still inflict irritating bites and make your outdoor gathering much less enjoyable. At Eco-Logic Management, we have extensive experience with mosquito control in the greater Phoenix area. Along with simply spraying yourself with mosquito repellent, there are also some other simple measures you can take to help keep mosquitoes away.

Eliminate Standing Water

Mosquitoes seek out standing water for reproducing, and only need a tiny amount of space. Clogged gutters should be cleaned out so they don't provide standing water for mosquito breeding.

Use a Fan

Mosquitoes don't fly as easily when there's a strong breeze. Also, mosquitoes detect the carbon dioxide that you breathe out, which then attracts them. A fan will help with dispersing carbon dioxide, making you less attractive to mosquitoes. And by using your fan in concert with a diffuser that emits a natural mosquito repellent, such as geraniol, you can help to keep them further at bay.

Use Screens

If you have a patio that would be lovely but for the barrage of mosquitoes, then you may want to install a mosquito-proof screen. This will thoroughly keep the little pests away from you.

Keep Up with Yard Work

Mosquitoes are drawn to shady, cool areas. So if you have tall grass and overgrown shrubs, then you could be providing a desirable habitat for mosquitoes. By keeping up with mowing, pruning, and weed-wacking, you can make your property less attractive to them.
