Ah, sweet summertime. As the sun sinks behind the horizon, the sky turns yellow, orange, red, purple, then deep, dark blue. You’re sitting on your lawn, basking in the evening air, but suddenly there’s a slight buzzing noise near your ear. As you brush your hand across your face, you feel a small insect smash against your jaw. Already, you feel something itching, and somehow you can see dozens more now, harassing you and congregating around your patio lights. 


Every summer, mosquitos take over the lawn and make being outside a borderline miserable experience. Naturally, we want to take back our summer and eliminate these pests. Initially, you might want to try and tackle the issue yourself, using DIY lawn care solutions. Or, should you use professional mosquito control services? Keep reading to see the pros and cons of both.


DIY Mosquito Prevention

Online remedies for mosquitoes include mouthwash, vinegar, Epsom salt, old beer, various essential oils, and mixtures of several of these ingredients. While some of these  options can be effective to some degree, they can also smell terrible and make the atmosphere unpleasant. Additionally, spraying your lawn yourself can take a lot of time and effort, plus special equipment, and will need to be repeated often.


Professional Mosquito Treatment For Lawns

Experts use high-efficiency gear and know-how to pinpoint precisely where they should spray their solutions. They know exactly where to look, what treatment methods to use, and how to best eliminate your mosquito population. Because these pesky insects are continually reproducing, your lawn care specialist will return to your lawn regularly to treat it. This gives you peace of mind knowing that your lawn is being taken care of by trained professionals.
