When dealing with a mosquito problem, it can be frightening to think of using harmful chemicals around your yard. After all, your yard doesn't just contain mosquitos, it's also home to a lot of plants and animals that aren't causing an issue. You might be worried about your children or pets as well and keeping them safe while eliminating the flying pests is your top priority. Fortunately, there are many ways to keep mosquitos off your property in safe and natural ways.
Grow Mosquito Repelling Plants
Planting herbs and flowers that repel mosquitos naturally is one of the easiest ways to keep mosquitos away from your home in a safe way. Lavender, marigolds, rosemary and basil are all plants that will keep mosquitos away due to strong scents that the flying insects can't stand. Plus, these plants are easy to grow and can be planted in containers or directly in your garden. Once the plants have been put in your yard, you can practically watch the mosquitos fly away.
Essential Oils for Personal Use
If you're going somewhere with a high mosquito population and are just worried about keeping mosquitos off without spraying your body with chemicals, essential oils are a great way to keep the bugs away. Like herbs and flowers, essential oils can repel mosquitos due to their strong scent. Mosquito repelling essential oils are readily available, and include lavender, cinnamon, thyme, soybean and lemon eucalyptus. Of course, you'll have to deal with the scent as well, so make sure to pick an essential oil that you enjoy.
Natural Mosquito Fog Treatments are Available
For a more professional option, there are green, environmentally friendly mosquito fogging treatments that you can have done for safe and convenient mosquito removal. These treatments work by using cleanly sourced beneficial bacteria to target mosquitos and other flying pests before they reach adulthood. These treatments are nontoxic, non-GMO, eco-friendly, effective and even beneficial to the environment. Best of all, they won't harm any of the local plants and animals - or your family.
