According to the 2016 Houzz Landscaping and Garden Trends Study, about half of homeowners who upgrade their outdoor spaces spend six or more hours per week in that space! During a beautiful summer evening when you just want to spend time outdoors with your family or with guests, few things can be more irritating than an out-of-control insect population. Mosquito control in your backyard can be a challenge for many homeowners, but existing options and services can ensure you enjoy your yard year-round.
Many homeowners looking for insect control in their backyards attempt natural, DIY solutions, including planting certain species of plants and flowers in their gardens. While there are some plants that have been shown to limit mosquitoes naturally, these solutions may be unreliable at best. They also require frequent maintenance and care to keep up, which can be particularly difficult if you don't enjoy gardening.
Mosquito Population Reduction
If you can identify the source of the mosquito problem, it becomes much easier to handle the situation. Mosquitoes tend to breed near areas with standing water. If there's a point that's lower in your yard where water collects when it rains, or if you've been having stormwater drainage issues around your home, mosquitoes attracted to that spot will thrive in such conditions. Standing water can cause a variety of issues for your yard as well, including damage to the lawn, surrounding plants and most importantly, your home. The right mosquito control program will be able to help you address these spots near your home.
Mosquito Control Services
The ideal solution for managing long-term, persistent mosquito issues is to hire a mosquito control service, with a licensed professional providing safe application as needed for your property. The best mosquito control services will be able to help you handle your current mosquito populations while also preventing future pest problems around your home and backyard. A professional mosquito control program is one of the simplest ways to reduce pest populations to an acceptable level so you and your family can enjoy time outside in your own yard.
Mosquitoes are a common, but irritating, summer pest in many backyards. However, hiring the right mosquito control service can ensure you enjoy the warmest months of the year. For more information, contact Bio Green Outdoor Services today.
