Dallas Property Owner's Complete Guide To Effective Mosquito Control

When you’re trying to sit outside and enjoy your Dallas home, one thing that can ruin the experience is dealing with pests. Some of the most frustrating pests in the area are mosquitoes. Most people despise these pests because they hang around humans and try to bite them. Their bites can hurt, but the biggest annoyance is that they leave really itch bumps.

Most people hate having mosquitoes around, but it’s easy to forget just how dangerous these pests are. They are much more than a nuisance. They are actually the deadliest animals in the world because they carry and spread many deadly illnesses. While you likely have an idea of what mosquitoes in Dallas look like, here is a brief list as they can look similar to other flying insects:

  • They have long, thin legs.
  • They have a skinny appendage from their faces that the females use to suck blood. 
  • They are usually a grey color.

Is Do-It-Yourself Mosquito Control Effective?

When people see that they have mosquitoes, sometimes they want to get rid of them on their own. They might assume that doing so is cheaper and that it’s not that difficult to do, but this is rarely the case. Mosquitoes are difficult pests to remove. Many homeowners take matters into their own hands, using a variety of methods, but a lot of these methods do not work very well. A lot of do-it-yourself products only work for a brief time and don’t actually address the problem. Some ineffective mosquito prevention and control steps include:

  • Using citronella candles
  • Using bug sprays that repel mosquitoes
  • Pesticides you buy at the store

While many of these methods are ineffective because they only target mosquitoes for a short period of time, there are some things you can do that can make your property less attractive to these pests, such as:

  • Removing standing water from your property
  • Making sure that hot tubs and pools are treated with chemicals
  • Trimming overgrown hedges and bushes
  • Cleaning gutters regularly
