How to Get Rid of Mosquitoes

Getting rid of mosquitoes can be challenging, but here are several effective methods you can try:

  • Remove Standing Water: Eliminate any stagnant water sources like buckets, flower pots, and clogged gutters to prevent mosquito breeding.
  • Use Repellents: Apply mosquito repellents containing DEET or picaridin to exposed skin when outdoors, and consider using repellent sprays or diffusers indoors.
  • Install Screens: Ensure windows, doors, and vents have intact screens to keep mosquitoes out.
  • Mosquito Nets: Use nets around beds to prevent mosquito bites while sleeping, especially in mosquito-prone areas.
  • Outdoor Maintenance: Keep outdoor areas well-maintained by trimming grass and bushes to reduce mosquito-hiding spots.
  • Natural Repellents: Plant mosquito-repelling plants like citronella and lavender, or use citronella candles outdoors.
  • Mosquito Traps: Set up traps in your yard with attractants to capture and kill mosquitoes.
  • Mosquito Dunks: Use larvicides in areas of standing water that can't be drained to kill mosquito larvae.
  • Regular Maintenance: Clean and chlorinate swimming pools, and change water in birdbaths and pet bowls frequently.

Are Mosquitoes a Problem in Beaufort?

Anyone who lives in the more humid, warmer climates of South Carolina and the surrounding areas knows that one of the most dreaded pests is also the smallest – the obnoxious mosquito. 

During the warmer months, these insects will completely take over your yard. Without superior mosquito prevention in Beaufort, Bluffton, and Ridgeland, you and your loved ones will be covered in bites every evening. 

The Dangers of a Mosquito Infestation 

While the buzzing and whining noises of mosquitos are certainly annoying to hear, and their bites can be ferociously itchy and painful, there is another negative side to mosquitos as well, which can be tremendously dangerous. Mosquitos are known for being highly effective carriers of terrible diseases, some of which can have long-term health defects, or even cause death.

The diseases attributed to mosquitos include:

  • Yellow fever 
  • The Zika virus
  • Malaria
  • The West Nile virus
  • Chikungunya
  • Dengue fever

To prevent these hazardous illnesses from affecting those you care about, any mosquito population you encounter should be quickly dealt with by a team of knowledgeable professionals from Old South Exterminators, who will be able to not only kill the current population but prevent future larvae from hatching and growing as well.

Finding the Natural Habitat of Mosquitos

To fully get rid of mosquitos, it is crucial to discover where they are living on your property. Otherwise, even if you manage to get rid of the current population, future generations are just going to come right back, as soon as the new batches of eggs hatch in the places where they are still safely hidden. In the wild, mosquitos could be found in many areas, ranging from holes in the ground to under the brush, resting in hollow logs or empty caves. When they come to infest your backyard, their habitats are just as varied, although they seem to greatly prefer places with a water source.

It is quite common to also discover mosquitos living and laying eggs in places like:

  • Water buckets and watering cans
  • The mouths of hoses
  • Fountains and ponds
  • Toys and tools left outside after a rain
  • In the tall grass
  • Holes of trees
  • Underneath stones
