Fight The Bite & Discover How to Repel Mosquitoes in Your Yard This Summer
Mosquitoes can really put the bite on outdoor fun. Not only are they annoying, but they can also carry serious diseases like the West Nile or Zika virus. While spray on repellents work, they can be messy to use, have an odor, and bring strong chemicals in direct contact with your skin. Below, our pest control specialist will teach you how to repel mosquitoes in your yard and keep them away for a bite free summer.
Put Up Air Curtains
Traditionally, air curtains have been used to keep mosquitoes away from guests at customer entrances, concession stands, and even drive-up windows at many fast food restaurants. Their effectiveness at repelling mosquitoes has made them accessible for use in residential outdoor living areas. Air curtains are simple to install and maintain, and their impenetrable screen of air helps prevent bugs of all kinds from entering the area.
Mosquito Misting System
Another great way to get rid of mosquitoes is misting systems. Mosquito misting systems use a few insect repellents to eliminate mosquitoes and other pests from your outdoor living space.
They can either be a drum-based or thankless system that you can program to activate on a schedule or by remote control.
