More on Mosquitoes
So, here are some specific suggestions on how to get rid of your mosquito population. First, if you have standing water that you cannot get rid of, consider placing Mosquito Dunks in the water. This is a natural biological control that is harmless to people, plants and pets. So this would work for fountains that have slow moving water that attract mosquitoes. If standing water isn’t your problem but you have shady damp areas filled with plant materials, consider spraying Hi-Yield 38 Plus on the shrubs. This will kill mosquitoes that land on the plant materials, and will also take care of many other lawn insects such as ticks, chiggers, ant, fire-ants and much more. Be careful with this chemical because it is stronger than the Mosquito Dunks and should be carefully sprayed after reading application instructions.
