Eliminate Standing Water

Mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water, so eliminating any sources of standing water in your yard can help reduce the mosquito population. Be sure to check for any containers or low-lying areas that may be filled with water after rain and either empty the water or cover the container to prevent mosquitoes from breeding.


Plant Repellent Plants

If you want to keep your outdoor areas free from pesky mosquitoes, consider planting some natural mosquito repellents like marigolds, lavender, and citronella. Not only are these plants attractive and fragrant, but they also have powerful properties that can keep mosquitoes and other insects away. Planting these around your house and other areas where you spend time outdoors can help create a mosquito-free zone.
