Having to swat away mosquitoes can make summer evenings in your yard unpleasant. These bugs can also get into your home and bite you and your family. In addition to using professional NJ mosquito control to prevent infestations, you can take steps on your own to keep mosquitoes away.
Check Window and Door Screens
Mosquitoes can get through tiny rips in window and door screens. Check all of the screens in your home for any holes or other openings that mosquitoes can use to get into your home. Patch screens or replace them as needed to keep these bugs out.
Use Mosquito Repellant
Mosquito repellant sprays and other products can keep mosquitoes away from you and your family. You can apply insect repellant before going outside in the evening, especially if you’ll be in a wooded area or other areas where mosquitoes tend to be common.
Portable fans on your patio or deck can keep mosquitoes away while you’re sitting outside. These fans stop mosquitoes from being able to fly toward you, so you can sit outdoors without having to swat them away.
Remove Standing Water
Mosquitoes lay eggs in standing water, so eliminating this breeding ground helps reduce mosquito populations. Get rid of standing water around your yard to make it harder for mosquitoes to reproduce.
