How to Get Rid of Mosquitoes in the Backyard

I Hate Mosquitoes!

Nowadays, mosquito-borne illnesses continue to emerge and take millions of lives across the globe. There are harmless mosquito species; however, most of the species feed on humans, pets and live stock and transmit life-threatening parasitic or viral diseases, especially here in Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and Washington DC. Mosquitoes are everywhere.  They buzz around and we suffer from itchy mosquito bites all summer long. But wait!  There is no reason to suffer this discomfort.  Read on to learn how to get rid of mosquitoes in the backyard.

Avoiding mosquito bites is quite difficult when hundreds of mosquitoes are flying around our yard. Vector control and spraying are the best methods to get rid of mosquitoes in the backyard and, at the same time, serves as preventive measurements against mosquito-borne Illnesses.

Vector Control

What is vector control?  Vector control is the most effective method on how to get rid of mosquitoes in backyard. Mosquitoes are a vector agent which means that mosquitoes “distribute” and transmits various harmful parasites and viruses.  These parasites and viruses can cause diseases in people and pets.  Eradication of mosquito-borne Illnesses has been fairly successful in many countries through vector control programs but vector control programs alone won’t protect your backyard in say McLean, Potomac, Bethesda or Great Falls. Vector control programs simply include elimination of mosquito breeding areas.  Bottom line, this means getting rid of standing water in and around your yard so the mosquitoes can’t breed.  This is the most effective way to control mosquitoes in the backyard.

Don’t leave pots, tires, or really anything that can collect water in your backyard.  With a bit of diligence Arlington, you can save yourselves from mosquito bites.

So you’ve tried getting rid of all the standing water in your backyard and you still have mosquitoes?  Time to call in the professionals.  Barrier spraying your yard is an effective way to rid your backyard of mosquitoes.
