How to Keep Mosquitoes From Killing Your Outdoor Fun

Planning a backyard bash, or just want to kick back in the great outdoors for a few? Chances are, you’ll be a target for mosquitoes. Even well-maintained yards can be hotbeds for mosquitoes. While it’s tough to avoid a bite or two especially during the warmer months, there are plenty of ways to mosquito-proof your outdoor space, and keep these pesky bugs at bay.

#1. Make Sure There’s No Standing Water

Mosquitoes lay eggs in standing water -- and, here, larvae live and grow. It’s infinitely easier to eliminate the standing water than to try and combat mosquitoes once they emerge. By the time an adult mosquito comes out of the standing water, your only options are airborne sprays.

#2. Make Sure Your Lighting ISN’T Attracting Mosquitoes

Certain lights attract mosquitoes -- not ideal. Mosquitoes are naturally drawn to UV lights, which are very common in outdoor artificial lighting. However, mosquitoes can’t see red or yellow lights. For that reason, many people put yellow lights outside to keep mosquitoes at bay.

#3. Grow Garlic in Your Yard

Garlic has long been used as a natural mosquito repellent. While experts are divided on why garlic is so effective, many believe the allicin garlic releases is harmful to mosquitoes, and they’ve evolved to avoid it. Others think it’s, simply, the strong smell which overwhelms mosquitoes and keeps them away.

Growing garlic is a great way to keep mosquitoes away. Even better, mince some of your home-grown garlic and mix with mineral oil then let sit for 24 hours. After that, mix with two cups of water and one teaspoon of lemon juice for a natural mosquito repellent.

#4. Screen or Cover Outdoor Spaces

One of the more surefire ways to keep mosquitoes away? Screen in outdoor areas. If you can’t or don’t want to, check out some of the more modern mosquito curtains and netting. Not only is it completely functional, but it’s been reimagined for today’s backyards and outdoor spaces -- in other words, it’s fresh, stylish and perfect for your space.
