Mosquitoes like to hang out in cooler, damp places during the heat of the day, which is why they tend to be hanging out near the bottom of tall shrubs, grass, and vegetation. Mosquitoes feast on plant nectar when they aren’t pillaging for blood, so they are often found in the heavy vegetation near your home. Be sure to trim back your shrubs, and keep your lawn regularly mowed to prevent these pests from having a place to hang out around your home.
3. Remove Yard Debris
Get rid of any areas where debris collects in the yard such as grass clippings and piles of leaves. Remove twigs, leaves and branches that have piled up in the corner of your yard or against the fence. Debris needs to be removed so that it does not become a point source for mosquito breeding.
