Read more here about controlling mosquitoes in your yard via the three most effective methods:
- Restoring soil health and fertility
- Eliminating breeding grounds

There are many kinds of mosquitoes and every yard is different. Mosquito experts will start by monitoring an area in order to develop mosquito control plans and determine the best way to stop mosquitoes.
Eliminating breeding grounds to stop mosquitoes

Removing standing water and increasing drainage to avoid water accumulation is a natural way to control mosquitoes in your yard. This can include keeping gutters and birdbaths clean and making sure swimming pool covers are free of standing water.
