Mosquitos In Madison, New Jersey Won't Know What Hit Them
Ladybugs eat aphids to keep them from destroying your plants. Honey bees spread pollen to help new plants grow. Butterflies add a touch of gorgeous color to everything. There are lot of insects in the world that provide benefits to the environment.
Mosquitos are not one of those insects.
There's nothing that can ruin a beautiful day faster than a swarm of mosquitos pestering you and yours. Not only do their bites itch and hurt, but every bite carries the potential of introducing a troublesome disease into your bloodstream - some of them even life-threatening. Keep your family safe and your yard protected with professional mosquito control services from All Wet Irrigation & Lighting.
Controlling mosquitoes in your backyard can be achieved through several methods. Start by eliminating standing water where mosquitoes breed, such as in flower pots, buckets, or clogged gutters. Use mosquito repellents and wear long sleeves and pants when outdoors. Install screens on doors and windows to keep mosquitoes out of your home. Consider using mosquito traps, bug zappers, or citronella candles to deter them. Plant mosquito-repelling plants like lavender, basil, or marigolds. Additionally, a professional pest control service can offer targeted treatments to reduce mosquito populations effectively and make your outdoor space more enjoyable.

What You Can Do To Prevent Mosquitos
Make no mistake - there is no substitute for a professional mosquito control treatment to protect your yard from these annoying bloodsuckers. But in the meantime, here are some tips you can use to repel them short-term:
- Peppermint - Put a few drops of peppermint essential oil and one cup of water in a spray bottle, shake well and spray around your deck to help keep the pests away.
- Sage & Rosemary - Grilling out? Putting a few sprigs of fresh sage or rosemary on the grill will deter mosquitos from hovering while you cook.
- Hire Some Muscle - There are a number of birds - including orioles, cardinals and finches - that eat mosquitos. Put a bird feeder in your yard with seeds that will appeal to these species and when they come to eat the seeds they can take out some flying annoyances while they're at it.
These are just a few things you can try - of course, there are also some of the tried-and-true methods like citronella candles. Just remember - if you truly want a yard virtually free of mosquitos, you'll want to have one of our highly-trained technicians out to survey your yard and apply preventative treatments.
