Mosquito season is here in Texas, and these pests know how to put a damper on your outdoor festivities. However, there are a few ways to stop them from forcing you and your guests back inside. You can start by getting to the root of the problem and eliminating what's attracting them to your property in the first place. If you're short on time, you can set up natural repellents around you and your guests to keep the mosquitoes off everyone. However, the best method to keep mosquitoes off your property is to hire a professional pest control company. A pest control company will use highly effective products and systematically treat any areas on your property to prevent mosquitoes from gathering in your yard. By following these methods, you can continue enjoying the outdoors with your friends and family!

Reduce the mosquito population on your property by getting to the root of the problem.

If you notice mosquitoes are arriving in droves onto your property, then you need to figure out what is attracting them to it in the first place. You want to look out for any standing water that may be sitting out in your yard because mosquitoes use standing water to breed. If you have a pond or other water feature on your property, you can simply add a bubbler to them to keep the water in motion. For other places with water, like bird baths or water bowls for your pets, you need to make sure those are changed out often.

Mosquitoes also hide under debris to take refuge from the sun, which means you need to clean up any excess clutter on your property. The same goes for any untrimmed plants and tall grass. Keep your vegetation and lawn neatly trimmed to reduce the number of places mosquitoes can hide! By taking these measures, you should be able to reduce the mosquito population on your property.

Set up natural repellents around you and your guests to keep mosquitoes away.

If you want to help prevent mosquitoes from ravaging you and your guests, then another thing you can do is to set up natural repellents around everyone. The scents from these repellents will keep mosquitoes at bay. Lemon eucalyptus oil has proven to work as a natural repellent against mosquitoes. However, you have other options if you don’t like that particular scented oil. You can choose lavender, cinnamon, or even tea tree oil to help repel mosquitoes from you and your guests!
