Using high-quality products and state-of-the-art equipment, our team can efficiently and effectively treat your yard to both eliminate existing mosquitoes and prevent future infestations from taking place.
How to Prevent Mosquitoes
The last thing you want is for mosquitoes to take over your yard. Since these pests can be difficult to get rid of, it is always best to take precautions to try and prevent them. There are plenty of things you can do to make your property less inviting to them.
To prevent mosquitoes, you should:
- Eliminate sources of standing water in your yard (such as overwatered pots, birdbaths, etc.)
- Place mosquito-repelling candles or lanterns around your yard
- Plant lavender, citronella, rosemary, and other mosquito-repelling plants in your garden
- Remove dead leaves, branches, and other debris from your lawn
- Mow your lawn regularly
- Clean out your gutters to discourage mosquito activity
- Schedule routine pest control
One of the very best ways to keep mosquitoes off your property is to schedule routine mosquito control. At Hawx Pest Control, our team is here to ensure your yard is protected against these irritating pests. Our treatment process is effective in significantly reducing mosquito populations in just a matter of weeks.

When Should I Be Concerned About a Mosquito Bite?
While most mosquito bites are only a nuisance, they can be harmful for two reasons: 1) mosquitoes are known to carry and transmit serious diseases, and 2) some people are allergic to mosquito bites. Mosquito-borne diseases include malaria, zika virus, dengue fever, yellow fever, West Nile virus, meningitis, and more. If your mosquito bites are just itchy and irritating, they can be treated with anti-itch creams and a cool cloth.
However, if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms from your bites, you should seek medical attention right away:
- Fluid-filled blisters
- Difficulty breathing
- Eye redness
How to Avoid Mosquito Bites
Experts have determined that certain factors play a part in how attractive a person is to a mosquito. Depending on the clothing you wear, what your blood type is, whether or not you are drinking, what your body temperature is, and whether or not you are wearing a fragrance are all factors that can impact your risk of being bitten by mosquitoes. While you cannot change your blood type, there are a few things you can do to help you avoid mosquito bites.
To prevent mosquito bites, you should:
- Avoid going outside during peak mosquito breeding times (dawn and dusk)
- Wear light-colored clothing that covers as much skin as possible
- Apply mosquito repellent to your exposed skin
- Avoid applying lotions, hair products, or perfumes with fragrances
- Limit the amount of alcohol you consume while spending time outside
