DIY Mosquito Treatment Options

For all types of pest problems, including mosquitoes, many people want to opt for using all-natural or DIY treatments. A mosquito problem is rarely controlled with all-natural products, making it important to get help from a professional mosquito exterminator.

While most DIY mosquito treatment options will not work to control a full-blown infestation, they may be successful in deterring a few mosquitoes.

Can I Treat Mosquitoes Myself?

Rather than turn to store-bought products or DIY treatments, the best way you can get rid of a mosquito problem is to eliminate the things around your property that could attract mosquitoes. This includes inspecting your yard for potential mosquito breeding grounds: anything that contains standing water. Tip-over or cover stagnant water in birdbaths, pools, buckets, planters, playsets, and more. In addition, consider installing oscillating fans in your outdoor patio, as mosquitoes hate the wind. These are two easy, essential ways to get rid of mosquito problems naturally without the risk of applying your own treatment.

Home Remedies for Mosquitoes

Many articles online might lead you to believe that homemade mosquito treatments or sprays will work, often ones that include essential oils. While these sprays can be effective at warding off mosquitoes, they are not strong enough to eliminate a mosquito problem in your home or yard. It’s always recommended to work with a professional who can recommend the most effective and safe mosquito treatments for your home and yard.

DIY vs. Professional Mosquito Treatment

Believe it or not, trying to apply mosquito treatment yourself can be dangerous and worsen your mosquito problem. A professional mosquito exterminator can help ensure mosquitoes are diverted from your home each and every year with custom treatments and inspections. Batzner Pest Control is proud to provide Wisconsin residents with effective, trustworthy mosquito treatment options.
