How to Fend Off Mosquitos in Atlanta

There are so many things to love about summer, but mosquitos are not among them. Worse, it seems mosquitos love the summer as much as we do. Some locations are lucky, but the humidity and rainfall in Atlanta make it a hot spot for mosquitos which love laying their eggs in warm, standing water. Your friends at Arbor-Nomics want you to get the most out of your yard and mosquitos get in the way. So, we have put together this article on dealing with mosquito infestations. If this article leaves you with any questions or concerns and you would like to hire a specialist, then call Arbor-Nomics today.

High Chance of Mosquitos

If you have been in Atlanta for even just a summer, you know that we get a lot of heat, humidity, and rainfall through the season. These are ideal conditions for mosquitos to breed and thrive. As you may have experienced, mosquitos do take full advantage of the opportunity. In fact, Georgia, tops lists of U.S. states most plagued by the buzzing pests. That’s the bad news. The good news is that there are solutions and Arbor-Nomics’ Mosquito Control Program is an available add-on service for customers on our lawn care program.

Getting Rid of Mosquitos

It is hard to enjoy a summer barbeque with mosquitos trying to get a taste of you. While it may seem impossible to get these uninvited guests away from your party, there are some measures you can take:

  • Grab some good quality mosquito repellent and lather up.
  • Citronella candles are wonderful in fending off mosquitos, but make sure to get enough if you are going to cover a large area.
  • Fix any drainage issues on your property to minimize standing water where mosquitos can lay their eggs.
  • Make sure your gutters are not clogged and collecting water.
  • Regularly empty drainage plates under outdoor potted plants. It can be easy to overlook these.
  • Empty your pet’s outdoor water bowl at least once every several days.
