Get Rid of Standing Water
Don’t allow water to stand around in bird baths, plant pots, or other spots in your yard. Change bird bath water regularly. Any standing water provides a spot for mosquitoes to lay their eggs. You can prevent the eggs from hatching into new mosquitoes by removing standing water.
There are several common plants that can repel mosquitoes. Add pots of them to your porch and patio to keep mosquitoes away from your entrances. You might also plant them in the ground where you want to reduce mosquito numbers. These plants include marigolds, lavender, rosemary, catmint, mint, and lemon grass.
Keep your lawn mown regularly to reduce places for pests to hide. Long grass can provide shelter and shade for pests like mosquitoes, fleas, and ticks. Hire a lawn maintenance service to help you keep your lawn mowed or to eliminate weeds.
