Mosquitoes? Eliminate breeding areas by:

Natural smart eliminators not pesticides.

This year has been an exhausting fight in keeping these pest away. Even with 2 electric zappers and my neighbors bat house, it has not been enough.

Here are few tips that I am sure we know as gardeners but sometimes get to busy to remember.

So task yourself and remind your neighbors to be diligent.

Hopefully persistence will when out.

  • cleaning gutters

  • replacing the water in birdbaths

  • dumping flowerpot saucers

  • removing other standing water

  • adding biological controls to small ponds or containers difficult to empty.

  • you might consider planting mosquito-repelling flowers and plants, like peppermint, lavender, marigolds, chrysanthemums, lemon eucalyptus, pennyroyal, and feverfew.

  • You can prevent mosquitoes from breeding on lawns by keeping them tidy.
