You may not be able to get rid of mosquitoes entirely, but you can help keep them away with a combination of tips for around the home and the right products. In addition to stagnant water where they breed, mosquitoes are attracted to perspiration, body heat, and the carbon dioxide given off by your breath. Which means the first step in fighting mosquitoes is to eliminate the things they’re attracted to. And since we don’t recommend you stay inside all summer, a personal or area mosquito repellent product can also help if you want to enjoy the outdoors.
Mosquitoes Love Standing Water. Avoid Them With These Tips:
Don’t Be a Mosquito Magnet
Stay indoors during dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active. Avoid dark places, bushes, and tall grass since mosquitoes seek resting areas that have low airflow.
Wear pants and long sleeve shirts when you know mosquitoes are nearby. Mosquitoes are attracted to dark colored clothing, so opt for lighter colors when you go outside.
Use Raid® Flying Insect Killer to kill mosquitoes, flies, and other flying insects. It can be used both indoors and outdoors.
Also, you can use a product like OFF!® Bug Control Backyard Pre-Treat as a perimeter or spot treatment to help keep mosquitoes out of your yard. Learn more about this product.
Keep mosquitoes from coming inside your home. Check your window and door screens for tears or holes, use central air or air conditioning, and don’t keep the windows open.
Only female mosquitoes bite. They use your blood to produce more eggs!
Adult mosquitoes emerge 10-14 days after the eggs are laid. That’s why it’s important to remove standing water right away!
