DIY Mosquito Treatment Options

Many people look to use all-natural or DIY methods to get rid of pest problems—including mosquito infestations—on their own. But are DIY mosquito treatment options as viable as professional treatment options?

Unfortunately, the truth is that trying to implement mosquito treatment on your own is at best effective for a short period of time. DIY or all-natural methods simply won’t work against a serious mosquito problem here in Georgia. That said, some of these popular methods work to prevent the pests in the first place.

Can I Get Rid of Mosquitoes On My Own?

If you want to get rid of mosquitoes (and do so quickly and effectively), trying to accomplish the task on your own can be difficult and unsuccessful. The easiest, most effective way to get rid of mosquitoes on your own is to make your yard less attractive to them 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.

DIY Mosquito Repellents in Georgia

Chances are, you have things in your pantry that may be incorporated into a DIY mosquito repellent. For example, many people stand by the idea that people claim that using essential oils diluted in a spray will repel mosquitoes. But do these actually work? 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, whether professional or DIY.

DIY vs. Professional Mosquito Treatment

If your DIY methods have failed in controlling an ongoing mosquito problem, it’s likely time to contact a professional mosquito exterminator. An expert can help ensure mosquitoes are diverted from your home each and every year with custom treatments and inspections. Learn more about how Active Pest Control can help.
