What You Can Do About The Mosquitoes In Your Yard

Mosquitoes are extremely annoying with their buzzing about and their biting, leaving you with itchy bumps that'll leave you itching and scratching all over. The mosquitoes are usually laying low in the grass but can get stirred up rather quickly as soon as you step out in the grass. These pests can become quite a nuisance and cause you to not even be able to go outside in your own yard. If you have a problem with these pests, you can hire a pest control company to help you get rid of most of them. Read on for other things you can also do.

Keep Your Grass Dry

This isn't exactly an easy task, but if you have grass that is always wet or that has puddles in it, it is going to attract mosquitoes to the yard. They will lay their eggs in the water, so if you have puddles or low-lying areas, you're going to wind up with mosquitoes as well. Try to fill in any of these low spots to prevent puddles in the yard. If your grass is wet for other reasons, such as something draining into the yard, you should also get this under control as well.

Spray Your Yard

You can spray your own yard or use a granular pesticide to kill the mosquitoes as well. These types of products can be found at your local hardware store. Use them according to the manufacturer's instructions and spray your yard thoroughly to get rid of these pests and to make your yard a bit more comfortable to be outside.

Keep Your Lawn Mowed

Keep your lawn trimmed and mowed, and keep your landscaping cleaned up to prevent mosquitoes from nesting in these areas. Allowing your yard to get too overgrown is going to attract a lot of other pests as well. You should keep your lawn kept no longer than 3 - 4 inches tall. Trim around trees, fences, and around the perimeter of your home as well. Tree limbs shouldn't be allowed to hang so low that they are hanging in the grass or creating too much shade in your yard.

If you have a problem with mosquitoes, you should hire a pest control company to rid your yard of them. These pests can be very annoying and can be much more than a nuisance. These pests can leave you with itchy marks all over your body; get rid of them by hiring the pros.
