Can I Get Rid Of Mosquitoes In My Atlanta Yard On My Own?

There are many things you can do to get rid of mosquitoes on your own. The secret to dealing with mosquitoes in Atlanta is understanding what you're up against. These pests are actually more mysterious than you might think. They don't just fly into your yard, bite you, and head off to find someone else to bite. They encroach upon your property, breed near your home, and live in your yard.

If you know how this works, you can have some success controlling mosquitoes in your yard. Will you have no mosquitoes? No. But you can take a bite out of their populations so they take fewer bites from you. Let's take a look at a few key factors to consider when it comes to mosquito management in Atlanta and discuss the best way to keep mosquitoes away and how to get rid of mosquitoes in your yard.

Why Choose Tuxedo Mosquito Control?

Why Mosquitoes Like Your Atlanta Yard

When mosquitoes are drawn into your yard, they're going to find a location to breed. If you address attractants, you can keep mosquitoes away and reduce their numbers in your yard. Once again, this will not make it so that you have no mosquitoes on your property, it will only reduce their numbers and reduce bites.

Here are a few reasons why mosquitoes in Atlanta come into your yard, and how you can deter them:

  • Replace exterior white lights with yellow lights. Insects can't detect yellow light and are therefore not attracted to it.
  • Clean your gutters out and make any necessary repairs. This can reduce moisture near your home and deter mosquitoes.
  • Remove unnecessary vegetation from your landscaping. This helps to keep your landscape dry and also removes a food source for mosquitoes. When mosquitoes get into your landscaping, they feed on nectar from flowers, plants, and weeds. They also feed on plant sap. Get rid of unnecessary vegetation to make your landscaping mosquito resistant.
  • Address puddles. If you have conditions that cause puddles to form in your yard, mosquitoes can use those puddles to breed. It takes just over a week for mosquitoes to go from eggs to flying adults.

Why It Is So Hard To Keep Mosquitoes Away From Your Atlanta Yard

Most yards have hiding places for mosquitoes. These insects don't need landscaping in order to establish themselves on your property. They can get underneath a deck, patio, porch, or shed. They can breed in a cup full of water in your gutters. This is why we strongly recommend spraying for mosquitoes in your yard. This is best done by a licensed professional.

We don't take a cookie-cutter approach and it really shows. Our customers get customized mosquito control that considers the conditions in their yards and the level of control they're looking to get.
