Mosquitoes on your lawn are more than just a nuisance. They’re also harbingers of diseases that can affect your entire family. Even after spraying insect repellents, they never seem to go away.
Thankfully, there are natural ways to keep these tiny bloodsuckers at bay and protect your home. At Andora Lawn Care, we specialize in 100% organic mosquito prevention measures designed to safeguard your family and preserve the sanctity of your outdoor living spaces.
Here are our top six ways to naturally repel mosquitoes and ticks from your lawn.
1. Keep your lawn short and trimmed
One of the best ways to get rid of mosquitoes is by making sure that your lawn is short and trimmed. If you have tall grass in your yard, it will become a perfect hiding place for mosquitoes. So, cut the grass regularly to keep them away.
2. Plant mosquito repellent plants
Plant mosquito repellent plants have the natural ability to ward off mosquitoes and keep them away from your lawn. Some examples include lavender, lemongrass, citronella grass, rosemary, catnip, and marigold.
These garden plants not only protect you from mosquitoes but also add a beautiful touch to your lawn and make it look attractive. What’s more, some of these plants have a very pleasant smell that can keep your lawn smelling fresh all day long.
3. Eliminate standing water
Mosquitoes need stagnant water to lay their eggs and reproduce. So, the first thing you need to do is get rid of any source of stagnant water in your yard like old tires, buckets, plant saucers, and other similar items.
Also, make sure that you don't leave any standing water in birdbaths or pet water bowls as these can become perfect breeding grounds for mosquitoes. Plus, it can promote unpleasant odors and be a breeding ground for disease-causing bacteria.
4. Reduce potted plants outside
Potted plants are one of the mosquitoes' favorite places to rest. Instead, you can keep your potted plants inside your home where mosquitoes cannot reach them.
Another good thing about this is that you will be able to keep your plants safe and add an aesthetic touch to your home interiors at the same time.
5. Get rid of tree stumps and debris
Mosquitoes love to hide under or near things as it provides them with a cool and dark place to rest. If there are any tree stumps or debris on your lawn, they can also become a perfect hiding place for mosquitoes. So make sure to remove them from your yard.
Cleaning up your garden regularly will help you get rid of these annoying flying pests.
6. Install outdoor lighting
Installing outdoor lighting around your yard can also help you to repel mosquitoes. Additionally, outdoor lights can make your outdoor living areas more accessible and welcoming.
So switch on some lights at night to avoid mosquito bites and enjoy a peaceful evening with your family.
If all else fails, contact a professional pest control service
If you are not able to repel mosquitoes yourself, consider hiring a professional pest control service. Remember, this isn't just about having a pest-free lawn, but also protecting your family members so it’s important to take all necessary precautions even if that means paying a professional to get the job done.
When choosing a pest control service, make sure they prioritize your family’s safety first. This means using pest control products that are not harmful to humans. Another important consideration is the effectiveness of the treatment.
