On Mosquito Pest Control, Everyone knows the feeling of having a relaxing afternoon outdoors interrupted
by a swarm of mosquitos, biting insects and the threat of West Nile. It’s not pleasant. Mosquitos are ruthless, they don’t discriminate, and they can make you uncomfortably itchy. Protecting you and your yard from these pesky insects has always been important. With the increase in West Nile cases nationwide, protecting yourself is more important than ever.
Chemical Pesticides Are Pests, Too
When mosquitos become too hard to bear, many resort to using harmful pesticides that can have harmful effects on plants, animals, and humans. However, there are
organic options that are better at repelling insects than most artificial chemicals – and better for the environment, too. Using natural products like PCO Choice Natural
Outdoor Pesticide and Best Yet Organic Pest Control and Bug Spray is a great alternative to harmful pesticides.
In addition to treating your yard with a natural repellant, there are several other
natural alternatives you can put into practice. Try some of these helpful tips:
Don’t Add Water
Mosquitos must have water to breed and are attracted to the stagnant water
that can appear in yards after a rainstorm, from melted snow, or in decorative or
natural ponds. By eliminating or changing the water in these areas, you can prevent
mosquitos from breeding there and infiltrating your yard.
Use Pungent Plants
You can ward pesky insects away merely by planting specific plants in your yard or garden. For those with gardens, planting garlic and rosemary could help keep bugs away. These plants produce pungent smells that mosquitos find repulsive. If gardening isn’t your thing, planting catnip or marigolds can be just as effective.
Pools and Ponds
Sometimes, stagnant water is found in decorative or recreational settings, but even these areas aren’t safe from becoming a safe-haven for breeding mosquitos. Make sure that you keep all pools and ponds clean and sanitary. Or be creative and make a miniature waterfall to keep the water moving.
Put Mother Nature to Work
A natural way to get rid of mosquitos is to attract bug-eating animals to your yard
and let Mother Nature do the work. Many birds eat mosquitos and other insects,
and bats eat them in droves. Try setting up a bird feeder or bat box and let them
feast away. Frogs, toads, and dragonflies are good alternatives and can live in ponds
already on your property if you have them.
Misting Systems and Best Yet
Misting systems can be filled with the most pungent garlic smelling material you could ever imagine or you can use PCO, which has a nice cedaroma and will make your back yard have a refreshing wood scent along with keeping the bugs away. We have a misting system which will be introduced in Spring 2013, which will revolutionize the idea of protecting your family, pets and yard with Organic Bug Spray. Get Ready!
Make Mosquito Protection a Priority
Whatever you do, it’s important to make protecting your yard from mosquitos a
priority. Mosquitos can carry dangerous diseases and viruses that can harm you and
your loved ones. So when it comes to biting bugs, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
The good thing is that if you take mosquito-prevention seriously, you can protect
your yard now and in the future.
