3 Ways To Spend The Summer Free From Mosquitos

The arrival of summer also brings with it more time to spend outdoors. One thing that can put a damper on anyone’s outdoor plans is the arrival of unwanted mosquitoes. Depending on the summer weather, mosquito season can last anywhere from anywhere from April to November.

We here at Foraker Landscaping & Hardscaping, the premier landscape contractors in Bucks County, have helped keep lawns beautiful year round. Here are three ways to eliminate unwanted mosquitoes from your property all season long:

Find Their Breeding Grounds

The biggest tip to prevent mosquitos near your house is to limit the available places for them to breed. All it takes is a little amount of stagnant water for a female to lay her eggs. A small bottle cap with leftover water in it can be the perfect place for a female mosquito. Other areas that can help spawn mosquitos include:

  • Bird baths
  • Tarps
  • Planters and pots
  • Gutters
  • Open trash cans


There are many different do-it-yourself methods when it comes to eliminating the threat of mosquitoes in your yard this summer. Mosquito repellent candles are available at a convenience store near you, but they can be very ineffective with just a slight breeze. Other methods include outdoor bug sprays, outdoor bug foggers, and certain plants, but each of them has some iffy results.
