Stop Mosquitoes Terrorizing Your Garden and Lawn


Source: Ways to get rid of mosquitoes in your garden and yard
It seems that Fall hatching Mosquitoes are far more aggressive than any other time of the year.

Mosquito misting systems, such as the MistAway Mosquito Misting System, which use insecticides to eliminate the pests from your outdoor space. The active ingredient most commonly used in these automated systems is called pyrethrin, which is derived from the extract of a certain variety of chrysanthemum flowers. {Keep in mind that Arsenic like pyrethrin is natural element effective in controlling insects, but that does not mean that I want it being sprayed over my patio or lawn.}

Portable Mosquito traps. Runs on propane and batteries and lures mosquitoes into a trap. One unit covers about an acre. These traps are supposed to run 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It takes about seven to 10 days to see a difference and four weeks to see significant results. While this system doesn’t take effect as quickly as misting systems, its portability and lower cost are huge advantages. I think mosquito traps may well be your best summer long solution to your mosquito infestation problem}.

Planting Lemongrass can be an easy effective way to help you control/repel mosquitoes. Citronella candles use Cymbopogon (lemongrass) as the active ingredient. Plant it in your garden and you may get some of its insect-repelling benefits. But the oil in the plant is what repels the mosquitoes, so it needs to be released by either crushing, drying or infusing the plant into an oil or alcohol base and applying it to your skin, clothing or outdoor space.

Citronella candles themselves tends to be the most inexpensive choice available. Citronella oil or candles are widely available in decorative forms.
