To get rid of mosquitoes, the best approach is to look for ways to control your environment so you can easily destroy their breeding sites. Once you are able to stop what is increasing their population around you, you will be able to get rid of them totally.

1. Ensure the sources of any stagnant water around your house is flushed out. It has been researched that mosquitoes like to stay very close to where there is standing or stagnant water. That is why if you have an unfiltered fish pond, driveway puddles, around your house, you will definitely be having a difficult time due to the activities of the mosquitoes in the inside and outside of your house. To do this, you will need to remove the sources of standing water around you.

2. Maintain your swimming pool: if you have any unused swimming pool around you, or if it lacks proper maintenance, the pool can easily turn to a breeding site for mosquitoes. To stop this, you should try to keep the water fresh always through proper maintenance.

3. Always mow your grass and cut the shrubs.
