Best Ways to Keep Mosquitoes Away This Summer

Summer is the time for warmth, long days, and the real pain of mosquitoes. These insects not only trouble outdoor activities but also pose health risks due to disease transmission. In this blog, we have accounted for several ways to reduce their population efficiently so that you may spend your summers without fuss.

Understanding Mosquito Attraction and Behavior

Things mosquitoes are attracted to include body temperature, carbon dioxide, and somebody’s smells. It is well documented that they are usually at their peak activity during the two twilight periods; however, this depends on the species. These behaviors are essential to learning how to deter them best.

Proven Methods to Repel Mosquitoes

Remove Standing Water

Among the most prudent control measures against mosquitoes is eliminating standing water sources from the environment, as they like to breed in standing water. That means draining standing water from flowerpots, bird baths, and clogged gutters and frequently changing the water in outdoor pet bowls.

Use Mosquito Repellents

Mosquito repellents containing DEET, picaridin, or lemon eucalyptus oil are highly efficient. Plant oils and biopesticides—such as citronella and geraniol—are also effective in protecting plants but may require more frequent applications.

Install Screens and Netting

Installing screens on windows and doors and mosquito nets, particularly in areas with many, are significant barriers against mosquitoes. 

Plant Mosquito-Repelling Plants

This will involve planting citronella, lavender, and marigolds in your garden. Plants of these types, through their unappealing scent, have a natural way of keeping mosquitoes away.

Professional Mosquito Control Services

Fullscope Pest Control understands the hassle mosquitoes can have during the summer. We provide dedicated mosquito control solutions that address all your needs. Our services include the following:

Mosquito Misting Systems

Our fully automated systems mist an acceptable botanical insecticide around the perimeter of your outdoor living areas, creating a protective barrier against mosquitoes. We engineer our systems to be efficient and safe, minimizing their impact on the environment and non-target species too. The best part is that you can program the misting systems to spray at the time of day that best suits you for complete protection without daily maintenance.

Residual Barrier Sprays

We zero in on the mosquito daytime resting spots—under decks, in shrubs, and other vegetative area—with residual barrier sprays to drastically reduce their population. Not only are adult mosquitoes controlled thereby, but it also helps break the breeding cycle, hence long-term control of populations. Our sprays are safe around pets and children; therefore, one dependable solution for areas heavy with mosquitoes.

Mosquito Fogging

Our fogging service is ideal for immediate relief from mosquitoes. This service reduces mosquito numbers during peak activity times by applying the product directly onto areas where mosquitoes rest. Fogging is perfect for preparing for outdoor events or responding to sudden spikes in the mosquito population.
