How to Survive Mosquito Season In Dallas
Lean how to safeguard your home, lawn and landscape during mosquito season.
Summer is upon us and the mosquito season isn’t far behind. Our pest control specialists share their top tips to keep mosquitoes at bay all summer long.
Dress up and spray on!
The easiest way to protect against annoying insects during mosquito season is with bug spray. Anything with DEET, picaridin, IR3535, or lemon eucalyptus oil will tell those bugs to buzz off. And even though it’s hot, the less skin you show, the harder it will be for mosquitoes to bite you. Long sleeved-shirts, long pants or jeans, high-topped shoes or boots, and high socks are all great for this, especially when camping or hiking. You can stay cool by wearing lighter colors.
The potent fragrances and essential oils in some plants, such as lavender, and marigolds, naturally repel mosquitoes. If you enjoy spending time outdoors on your deck or patio, pot up a few of these plants and set them around the perimeter to naturally help keep mosquitoes at bay—and add a little beauty to the setting. Other mosquito-repelling plants include citronella (and other scented geraniums), lemongrass, rosemary, catnip, bee balm, ageratum, peppermint, basil, and sage.
You can also use mosquito traps like the In2Care Mosquito Traps to help keep mosquitoes away from your porch or patio. However, it’s important to change the traps regularly. If you’re having an outdoor party, traps can be an effective way to protect your guests from mosquitoes, especially when used along with with other mosquito controls and repellent products.
