How Do You Get Rid of Mosquitoes in Your Yard?
Eliminating mosquitoes in your yard requires a targeted approach. You’ll need to attack mosquitoes at every stage of their lifecycle to get rid of them, including:
- Stopping mosquito breeding
- Eliminating adult mosquitoes
- Repelling additional mosquitoes
To stop mosquitoes from reproducing on your property, eliminate the environments that they need for breeding. Mosquitoes always lay their eggs in or around water. Your first step toward getting rid of mosquitoes should include proper drainage throughout your home. Unfortunately, you’re at a higher risk for mosquitoes if you live near a ditch, swamp, pond or lake. Do what you can by reducing puddles after it rains, and make sure you aren’t leaving out buckets or planters that can hold water.
To eliminate adult mosquitoes, you’ll need effective pesticides. These days, you can find traditional chemical as well as organic options that are just as effective. Professional mosquito exterminators can help you apply the pesticide properly and track mosquito growth along your property.
Lastly, repelling mosquitoes is key to keeping them from continually returning to your home. Professionals can use spray repellents or foggers that repel mosquitoes for long periods.

Can You Use DIY Mosquito Control?
Most of the sprays and tools you need for mosquito control are available for individual purchase. However, you’ll need to consult a technician if you’re looking for professional-grade products.
When it comes to DIY mosquito control, there’s a lot you can do on your own. Technicians will encourage you to take preventative steps that make your property uninhabitable for mosquitoes.
The best step you can take is to maintain a clean, healthy lawn. Prioritize the following DIY steps to eliminate mosquitoes:
- Keep shrubs, trees and grass trimmed back from your home
- Landscape to prevent puddles and stagnant water
- Bring objects inside or out of the rain, including toys, planters and buckets
- Maintain properly sealed trash bins
- Regularly clean up yard debris including dead leaves and sticks
You’ll need to maintain these steps even if you’ve hired a professional mosquito company. Working with a specially trained technician will target and eliminate mosquitoes, while your DIY steps can help keep them from returning.
