You have to clean your gutters if you want to get rid of mosquitoes as soon as possible. Since mosquitoes will breed in any amount of water, you have to clean your gutters as soon as you can. If you don’t do this, your home will become a Club Med for these pests. So you have to do something about it right away.

To prevent any kind of standing water, clean the roof of your gutters right away. You can also drill holes right in the bottom of any trash or recycling container out there.

Bird Baths

Birdbaths

Birdbaths

You have to clear out mosquito eggs from your birdbaths, and this can be done once a week. You should also shower within two hours of being in the yard, as you will prevent Lyme disease from happening to you over time. This shower will prevent a tick from latching on, so if you take off your clothes it will be better for you over time.

But you don’t have to shower each time you enter into the backyard indeed. But you have to wash off in the event that you happen to spend time on brushes and woodpiles.

Hanging some bouquets of your favorite herb like mint or rosemary near any potential nesting sites will be useful too. Think about awnings and railings along with eaves and nooks and crannies. If you hear many wasps just buzzing about, you know it is high time for your fav fresh bouquet out there. You can also let these wasps just be because they will pollinate flowers and pray on a lot of outdoor pests that may cause true problems in your garden.

You can also perform a tick check in your arms if you have just spent around 36 hours in your yard.

Remember also that keeping bugs at bay is always a good idea. We have told you about some ways you can achieve your goals, and they will not require you to spend a lot of money though. Cleaning your gutters is always a great idea, and you should do the same with your birdbaths.
