DIY Mosquito Treatment Options

For all types of pest problems, many people look to try and get rid of the pests themselves. Many look to using DIY mosquito treatments as often as possible, but do these work as well as professional mosquito treatments?

Although some DIY methods may work to repel mosquitoes for a short period of time, they rarely are strong enough to control a serious mosquito infestation. That said, there are some you may want to try that can work for small or occasional mosquito problems.

At-Home Mosquito Treatments

The best thing you can do to get rid of mosquitoes on your own is to simply make your property less attractive to them in the first place. This includes inspecting your yard for potential mosquito breeding grounds: anything that contains standing water. Tip-over or cover stagnant water in birdbaths, pools, buckets, planters, playsets, and more. In addition, consider installing oscillating fans in your outdoor patio, as mosquitoes hate the wind. Just these two steps alone are the most effective DIY mosquito treatments you can implement.

Do DIY Mosquito Repellents Work?

Just like with any other pest, your first instinct when you discover a mosquito problem is how you can get rid of them on your own. Many people claim that using essential oils diluted in a spray will repel mosquitoes. While these sprays can be effective at warding off mosquitoes, they are not strong enough to eliminate a mosquito problem in your home or yard. It’s always recommended to work with a professional who can recommend the best mosquito treatment options.

DIY or Professional Mosquito Treatment

If you’ve done all you can to get rid of mosquitoes using DIY methods to no avail, it’s best to enlist the help of a professional mosquito control company. An exterminator can help ensure mosquitoes are diverted from your home each and every year with custom treatments and inspections. Vermont Pest Control can determine how to keep mosquitoes out of your yard for good.
