How to Keep Your Yard Free of Mosquitoes This Summer

Mosquitoes are no fun for anyone. These small, annoying little insects can actually cause a lot of damage to your health. Mosquitoes are one of the most dangerous animals on Earth because they can spread so many diseases. The Zika Virus and malaria are just a couple of the serious health issues that mosquitoes can cause.

Mosquitoes are so dangerous, that it is important for you to take precautions when spending time outside this summer. Waldorf, MD and it’s surrounding areas have a lot of mosquitoes. If you don’t want to smell like bug spray all summer long, then read on. In this article, we will give you tips for exterminating the mosquitoes in your yard and keeping them out for good.

How to exterminate mosquitoes

While you cannot exterminate all of the mosquitoes in the world, yet, you can take steps to keep them out of your yard. Follow the tips described here to keep your Waldorf yard mosquito free this summer.

Remove all standing water.

Standing water is not a good thing to have in your yard if you are trying to reduce or remove your mosquito population. Mosquitoes lay their eggs in non-moving water. So, by removing all standing water, you are making it harder for them to procreate in your yard. You may also want to consider asking your neighbors to remove their standing water as well, which can make your entire neighborhood mosquito free.

Use mosquito repelling plants.

Some plants naturally repel mosquitoes. Consider adding citronella, lavender, basil, lemon balm, or marigolds to your landscaping. All of these plants repel mosquitoes. However, one great thing about these plants is that they smell amazing to humans, and many can be used in cooking as well. Therefore, if you want a twofer—mosquito repelling and beautiful plants—try out this step.


Today you can easily find mosquito yard spray in any home improvement store. If you are planning an outdoor barbeque, are having a large group of people over, or just want to be outside without worrying about mosquitoes, you can use their spray options. Some products need 24 hours to work correctly, however, so you will need to plan appropriately.

Use mosquito repelling candles.

If you are a little worried about going with the mosquito spray option, then try using mosquito repelling candles. These products are easily found in many stores during Waldorf summers. The candles will not remove all mosquitoes from you yard. But they can potentially make it easier for you to enjoy the outdoors without getting eaten alive.

Kept your yard clean and cut.

The cleaner you keep your yard, the less mosquitoes you will have. Keeping your yard clean includes using the lawn mower regularly, as well as your trimmer and chain saw. The trimmer will keep grass from growing too high along the edges of your property, while the chain saw is great for cutting back trees and shrubs. You don’t want any place for mosquitoes to find. Thus, keeping everything neat and trimmed will go a long way in forcing the mosquitoes out.
