Keep Mosquitoes & Other Insects Out of Your Lawn
Your beautiful lawn is a mosquito’s playground. The tire swing tied to the oak tree, the bird bath in your front yard, your child’s swimming pool—all offer a breeding ground for local mosquitoes. These insects make it unbearable for an enjoyable backyard play date or grilling out with the family.

Tips for Getting Rid of Mosquitoes
It is important to be intentional about protecting your lawn from mosquitoes. Here are preventative measures to keep you and your family safe from mosquito infestation:
- Drain buckets and kiddie pools. When you drain stagnant water, it eliminates the mosquitoes’ breeding ground.
- Mosquito dunks are useful for bodies of water that cannot be dumped such as a pond or gutter. The dunks release chemicals to kill the mosquito larvae without hurting other species living in the water. They can be bought at local home and garden centers.
- Throw away unnecessary items in your lawn that create a shaded and damp area for mosquito breeding such as an unused playground or old patio furniture.
- Protect your lawn with insect repellent. Most repellents are available at garden centers for your convenience. However, if these insects have become out of control, contact a professional.
Georgia has roughly 60 species of mosquitoes buzzing inside our borders. West Virginia has the least amount of mosquito species while Texas unluckily has the most.
While most mosquitoes enjoy the cool weather that dusk and dawn provide, some species buzz about their business during the heat of the day proving that people are never safe from their bite. Mosquitoes enjoy their peak performance during the warm months that summer provides. Any stagnant body of water—from ponds to puddles—is a potential breeding ground for mosquitoes.
