DIY Mosquito Treatment Options

When you need to get rid of mosquitoes around your house, you have several options. Many people decide to try DIY mosquito control techniques whenever they can, but can these work as a replacement for professional treatment?

More often than not, DIY treatments will not work as well to get rid of mosquitoes. However, there are some options that work to handle smaller outbreaks.

Can I Get Rid of Mosquitoes Without Help?

The best general approach to getting rid of mosquitoes is limiting the number of things around your home that attract them. This means inspecting your yard for places where they could breed: any place that standing water has collected. Tip over or cover standing water in pools, spas, birdbaths, buckets, planters, playsets, and anywhere else. Also, consider placing oscillating fans in your outdoor areas, because mosquitoes don’t fare well in strong wind. There are two simple and trusted methods of at-home mosquito control.

Do Homemade Mosquito Sprays Help?

If you are currently dealing with a mosquito infestation, you might be wondering if anything you already own can help you get rid of them. Many people claim that a diluted spray with essential oils will help to keep mosquitoes away. While these sprays work to keep mosquitoes away temporarily, they will not be your permanent solution for mosquito control. For treatment that can take care of an entire infestation, it is recommended to consult a professional mosquito exterminator. 

At-Home vs. Professional Mosquito Treatment

If you want to make sure that mosquitoes never come back to your yard, a professional exterminator can set up the right treatment for you. An expert can make sure mosquitoes stay away from your home for the entire season with custom treatments and inspections. Learn more about how Western Exterminator, formerly Hitmen can help.
