Today, we're going to talk about how high and far mosquitoes travel and discuss why this is important to know when battling mosquitoes in Atlanta. Then we'll take a look at how you can use this information to get rid of mosquitoes in your yard for good. How does that sound? Great! Let's get into it.

How High Do Mosquitoes In Atlanta Fly?

Most of the time, mosquitoes don't go above about 25 feet. But they can get up high. This is important to understand. When you consider standing water as a potential breeding site in your yard, you need to consider blockages in your gutter system.

Mosquitoes can breed up there and then come down into your yard and live in your landscaping. It is essential to stay on top of cleaning your gutters if you want to reduce mosquitoes on your property.

Five Simple Ways To Make Atlanta Yards Less Attractive To Mosquitoes

If you want to keep mosquitoes away and prevent them from breeding on your property, here are a few natural ways to get rid of mosquitoes:

  1. Remove standing water. This removes breeding options.
  2. Address moisture issues. When you clean your gutters, you don't just remove standing water in your gutter system, you prevent ground saturation near your home. A dry perimeter is resistant to mosquitoes.
  3. Consider pool covers. Residents often worry about baby mosquitoes in the pool, but pools tend to be terrible environments for mosquitoes. This is mostly because the water is circulated and there are few bacteria. But the water that collects on pool covers is perfect for mosquitoes, they can breed like crazy in these tiny pools. So while you don't have to worry about baby mosquitoes in the pool, you definitely have to worry about them in rainwater that collects on your pool cover.
  4. Mosquitoes eat plant nectar. If you have lots of flowering weeds on your property, you're going to attract mosquitoes. Address weed problems to reduce mosquitoes and other insect pests.
  5. Lights attract insects. If you want to keep mosquitoes away, a good option is to replace exterior white lights with yellow lights. Mosquitoes can't see a yellow light and they aren't attracted to it.
