DIY Mosquito Treatment Options

To get rid of mosquitoes, there are many options. A lot of people look to use DIY methods to get rid of pest problems—but how well do these DIY options work? For mosquitoes, citronella and essential oils are two popular natural ways to control a mosquito problem.

More often than not, DIY treatments are not completely effective in getting rid of mosquitoes. However, there are some you may want to try that can work for small or occasional mosquito problems.

Can I Get Rid of Mosquitoes Myself?

The fool-proof way to get rid of mosquitoes naturally is to eliminate the things that would attract them to your yard in the first place. This includes inspecting your yard for potential mosquito breeding grounds: anything that contains standing water. Tip over or cover stagnant water in birdbaths, pools, buckets, planters, playsets, and more. In addition, consider installing oscillating fans in your outdoor patio, as mosquitoes hate the wind. These are two easy, essential ways to get rid of mosquito problems yourself.

Do DIY Mosquito Sprays Work?

If you have mosquito problems, you may be wondering if there are any household items you can use to get rid of them. Many people claim that using essential oils diluted in a spray will repel mosquitoes. While these sprays can be effective at warding off mosquitoes, they are not strong enough to eliminate a mosquito problem in your home or yard. It’s always recommended to work with a professional who can recommend the best mosquito treatment options.

Professional vs. DIY Mosquito Treatment

If you need mosquitoes gone and incapable of returning, a professional mosquito treatment is the best option for you. An expert can help ensure mosquitoes are diverted from your home each and every year with custom treatments and inspections.
