Firstly, you need to identify where you’re having the issue with the mosquitoes. There is no point in treating an area that isn’t affected by the infestation. Find out where the issue has started, more often than not this will be due to the fact that there is excess water in your garden. This is a mosquito's dream as it’s their natural habitat, this is their breathing ground. Treating the standing water will help to prevent any more mosquito infestations.
Top Tip: Pour some oil into the water, this will create a seal of oil at the top of the water. This means that mosquitoes won’t have any breathing space in the water as the seal of oil will not let them get out to breathe.
In addition to this, plants and oils can be used as a natural repellent as well as lights and candles. Mosquitoes tend to come on in the summer, in the evening around dusk. If your garden is overgrown and not well kept, getting your garden under control and cutting back the bushes and grass will help a huge amount.
Mosquitoes aren’t just an issue in the garden, they can occur in your house. When tackling the issue of your mosquito infestation, take a look inside too, eg under the sink, in closets, under furniture. Mosquitoes love to ned in dark and damp places, so take a look over your house to make sure there aren’t any issues.
