How to Create a Mosquito-Free Outdoor Living SpaceCentral Florida’s sunny weather is great for relaxing outdoors. However, residents and tourists are not the only ones out enjoying the Sunshine State’s warm climate; pests are too. In particular, mosquitoes breed in humid, warm temperatures and are sure to disrupt your outdoor enjoyment. If you’re seeing mosquitoes on your Orlando property when the temps start to rise, here are a few mosquito control tactics you can try to keep the pests away from your outdoor living space.

5 Mosquito Control Methods

You can control nuisance mosquitoes and keep your backyard a safe space for outdoor fun by:

  1. Clearing standing water

    Mosquitoes are attracted to water and humid climates. In fact, the pests spend 75% of their life cycle in water, so dumping stagnant water is a crucial step in controlling them. Some common areas to check for standing water include gutters, birdbaths, flowerpots, and buckets.

  2. Keeping your grass cut

    Besides standing water, mosquitoes like to rest in the shade. Tall grass or bushes can provide shady areas for mosquitoes to hover around. Mowing overgrown vegetation and exposing your lawn to direct sunlight can help curb your mosquito problem.

  3. Adding repelling plants

    Citronella, marigold, and lavender serve as natural mosquito repellents. The plants contain chemicals and strong fragrances that irritate mosquitoes, so planting them in your garden can help keep the pests away.

  4. Using fans

    Fans can simultaneously keep you cool and blow mosquitoes away by making it difficult for the pests to land nearby.

  5. Spraying insecticides

    Insecticides are commonly used to kill mosquitoes and their eggs and larvae. While spray repellents can help rid your property of mosquitoes, they often contain strong chemicals that can be unsafe for you and the environment. Therefore, it is recommended to have professionals spray your property for mosquitoes using non-toxic and eco-friendly methods to ensure the mosquitoes are the only living thing that gets eliminated.
