1) Use mosquito nets to protect yourself at night.
If you're sleeping in a mosquito-infested area, get a mosquito net to cover around the bed so that it touches the floor on all sides.
This is the only really effective way to controllers mosquito from getting inside to bite you, especially if there are open windows.
'Check the net for holes regularly even overly long toenails can tear a hole in them during sleep.
'Make sure you are not touching the net anywhere while you sleep.
'other pet refuges should also be covered with mosquito nets when you are experiencing a mosquito infestation.

2) Grow some garlic in your yard.
Eating garlic daily to repel mosquitoes has not been proven effective in scientific studies but, some people believe it has an impact when used as a barrier.
Since garlic is delicious, it can't hurt to grow it, but don't rely on it as the only source of repelling the pests.
'Plant garlic around your home to keep away mosquitoes. It can be integrated around your house, on a balcony, etc.
'Garlic powder from your local grocer sprinkled all through your yard may create a mosquito repellent. Sprinkle a little extra thickly around the patio and porch areas. This may protect pets from being bitten if they sleep in that area.

3) Use a mosquito trapping system.
Mosquitoes can be effectively killed using a dedicated machine that employs heat and carbon dioxide to attract the mosquitoes and then entrap or kill them using nets, containers or chemicals. While these mosquito trapping systems can be expensive, they're quite effective, and worth looking into if you're committed to keeping your yard mosquito-free.
'Mosquito controlling systems won't eliminate all of the mosquitoes from your yard. Every neighborhood tends to have more than one species of mosquito breeding in the area, and different types of trapping systems cater to different species.
'Ask around in your area to find out what type of trapping system has worked well for others.
'Avoid using an electric "zapper". These have been shown to kill many bugs very effectively, but generally the bugs killed are the non-harmful ones. Plus, the noise they generate tends to be obnoxious.



4) Dump or flush out any stagnant water sources in your yard.
Mosquitoes are often attracted to water, especially standing water. Examples of mosquito breeding grounds include old tires, driveway puddles, clogged gutters, unfiltered fish ponds, empty flowerpots, and any item that can hold water for more than a few days at a time.
'Use a push broom to distribute the water for small puddles on hard surfaces. Use a siphon pump for larger puddles.
'If you're inundated by mosquitoes due to standing water from street curbs, drainage ditches or other pools you cannot control, call the responsible public authority to explain that you believe the water has become a mosquito breeding source.
'If it is not possible to remove particular water source, place some Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis (BTI) dunks/granules into the water.
'BTI is a species of bacteria that functions as a parricide and will kill mosquito larvae for as long as a month, in addition to being safe and non-toxic to children/pets.


5) Remove standing water where mosquitoes could lay eggs
'Once a week, empty and scrub, turn over, cover, or throw out any items that hold water like tires, buckets, planters, toys, pools, birdbaths, flowerpot saucers, or trash containers. Mosquitoes lay eggs near water.
'Tightly cover water storage containers (buckets, cisterns, rain barrels) so that mosquitoes cannot get inside to leave eggs.
'For containers without lids, use wire mesh with holes smaller than an adult mosquito.
'Use to treat large containers of water that will not be used for drinking and cannot be covered or dumped out.
'If you have a septic tank, repair cracks or gaps. Cover open vent or plumbing pipes. Use wire mesh with holes smaller than an adult mosquito.
