So you've just moved into your new home - congratulations. Buying a home is an important event in anyone's life, and any new homeowner will want to make sure that transition goes as smooth as possible. But there's an unforeseen problem: You've got a mosquito issue. Fortunately, getting rid of mosquitos isn't too hard - as long as you know the right ways to do it. Here are a few of our new homeowner tips for dealing with mosquitos.

Repel Mosquitos with Natural Solutions

When it comes to keeping mosquitos away from your home, you may want to look for simpler solutions before calling pest control. Fortunately, there are some fantastic methods for keeping mosquitos off your property that can range from eliminating mosquito breeding grounds to adding the right natural mosquito repellants. These are great first step ways to deal with mosquitos, and they can also help you in the long run by dealing with other insects or pests.

First, it's important to figure out what the source of your mosquito problem is. If it's on your property, then you're in luck - eliminating that source will keep mosquitos from breeding near your home. Mosquitos love standing water and moist areas, so checking your home's drainage and filling any areas where water may collect on your property can make a huge difference. Overwatering gardens or plants may also help mosquitos breed, so be sure to water early in the morning.

If the mosquitos are coming from off your property, there are easy and natural ways to keep them away from your home. There are numerous mosquito-repelling plants and herbs that are easy to grow and thrive in warm climates. These plants include lavender, marigolds, rosemary, basil and many others - so review your options and choose what's best for you.

Fogging and Mosquito Control Systems

If the mosquitos still haven't gone away, it may be time to call in the professionals. Fortunately, there are many ways to deal with mosquitos that use green methods or discreet options that won't detract from your yard or home.
