After the stress of unpacking piles of boxes, the best way to relieve that stress is to take a load off in your new backyard. The only thing that can get in your way is pesky bugs biting you all night. Mosquitoes can gather around or inside your new home and cause unwanted stress. Luckily, we can give you the information you need to deal with these insects as soon as possible, so you can get back to relaxing.
WHEN DO THEY APPEAR?
It is important to note that mosquito season is slightly different depending on where you are. In Southern California, the mosquito season lasts from May till the fall, with the season peaking in September. So as soon as you start to feel the warm spring air (especially when it is around seventy degrees), you can expect to see the mosquitoes come out of hibernation.
WHAT ABOUT OTHER PLACES?
Areas with cold temperatures will see mosquitoes come out with rainfall and temperatures over seventy degrees. The unfortunate fact is, if you are in a state that never gets chilly, these insects tend to stay out year-round if the area is wet enough.
There are many ways to get rid of mosquitoes that may live in your new backyard or home. If you’re willing to spend some extra dough, these remedies will ensure a buzz-free backyard. The most beneficial product will be mosquito spray, which contains the chemical compound “DEET,” which is the most helpful chemical in getting rid of mosquitoes. Another popular way to get rid of mosquitoes is by buying a bug magnet or zapper. There have been evolving types of bug zappers like the ones created by the brand “Thermacell.” They sell dozens of different electric mosquito control solutions and are quickly rising to fame for their products.
Time for a scavenger hunt! If you’re on a budget, a few different remedies can be found in your very own home. Rubbing fabric softener sheets on your clothes is an old remedy shown to help. A new trend developing on social media shows that using the soap brand “Irish Spring” will hold off mosquitoes. Different fragrances will do the job as well. Some of those include essential oils like:

MOSQUITOES IN YOUR HOME?
If mosquitoes are not on the outside but inside your home, the quickest thing to do is to call a professional exterminator. If the problem is thankfully not that disastrous, then there are other ways to fix the problem. All the oils and plants mentioned before can work inside a home just as well as outside. Some more indoor-oriented options are laying out lavender-scented candles or burning coffee grounds around the house. These will both easily irritate the mosquitoes.
When it comes to getting rid of mosquitoes, there are multiple ways to eliminate and prevent the situation. Mosquitos are all affected differently by the chosen treatment because of their life cycles. So, it is important to try multiple ways and try out a different method if one does not work. From all the choices given, at least one way will provide relief in your home so you can get back to relaxing!
