- Use garlic juice, and products that contain it like Garlic Barrier® and Mosquito Barrier® Apply garlic juice with a basic pump sprayer on all of the trees and bushes in the area and onto both sides of the leaves. Particular attention should be given to greenery around the perimeter of the property.
- Use a natural insect repellent on skin like neem oil. It's natural, non-toxic and goes a long way toward repelling not only mosquitoes but also other small, biting, flying insects. Neem has a strong odor, so testing it first is recommended.
- Add bacillus thuringiensis (BT) to the water in a pond, fountain or birdbath to kill larvae and aid in mosquito control. Standing water is a breeding ground for mosquitoes, and can exist as a part of active streams or fountains, so stopping mosquitoes at the larval level is an important control method.
Have a bite-free end of the week!
