Your eyes are closed, you’re leaning back in your lounge chair, the warm sun is on your face, you can hear your kids giggling while they run through the sprinkler, you have a satisfied smile on your face and WACK! A mosquito on your neck?

Wake up. It’s still winter and you still have the rainy and cool spring season to get through. But that doesn’t mean you can’t dream about warmer weather. QUERY: Does your dream ever include a mosquito biting you? Never, right? Of course, it doesn’t. Unfortunately, that’s because it’s a daydream. In reality, mosquitoes are a normal and natural part of the summer months. They love the humidity, they can lay their eggs in the smallest amount of standing water, and they live on human blood. So, what can you do about mosquitoes? We have some answers.

Set It & Forget It

Call to schedule mosquito treatments now. No, not to have treatments DONE now, but to get rid of mosquitoes when the weather starts to turn warm (think April/May). By calling your pest control professional now, you will be ready for BBQs, picnics, outdoor events, that graduation party (when did kids start “graduating” from kindergarten anyway?), or just sitting on the back deck reading a good book. No matter what you use your backyard for, if you set up mosquito treatments now, you get ahead of these nasty pests.

Natural Remedies

Not only can you plan for mosquito treatments, you can plan some of your garden nice and early with flowers that actually help repel these little blood suckers. Marigolds and catnip may not be the prettiest of plants, but their scent will help keep away mosquitoes and even deer! If you’re looking for something with more curb appeal, you can plant lavender and geraniums. They will also help. Plan to have a fan outside with you. Mosquitoes are notoriously weak flyers so a simple fan will throw them off course – and away from your picnic. That will help with almost all flying pests, too, so bonus!

In addition to setting up early treatments for when mosquitoes do come out, you can also plan on some tactics that will help keep them at bay, as well. Listen, you may think it’s a little too early to be thinking about mosquito control. We get it. But while you’re wearing your comfiest chunky sweater in front of the fire, what’s on your to do list? Is there anything you can check off now? We think so: mosquito pest control services. Don’t worry about forgetting about mosquito treatments when you remember this early. You can put that on your to don’t list.
