This will prevent mosquitoes from spoiling your evenings in your garden.

The best aromatic plants to repel mosquitoes.

Now that your garden is ready, the lawn is perfectly mowed, all the furniture is up to date with the latest trends and you have a date for your first night with your friends, there is only one last detail left to take care of: how to prevent that mosquitoes spoil your evening.

These uninvited guests can be a nuisance, cause stings and make eating in the garden uncomfortable. In addition, once the first individuals appear, they will likely reproduce and remain in your garden throughout the season. That’s why we bring you a series of tips to make your garden mosquito-free so you can enjoy it like never before.

TIPS FOR AVOIDING MOSQUITOES IN THE GARDEN

To help you prevent and say goodbye to mosquitoes in your garden, here are five things to keep in mind.

AVOID STANDING WATER

Rain, a poorly closed water supply, leaks in the pool? Any environment with water is a perfect habitat for mosquitoes.

Which places do we not take into account and which are essential for the reproduction of these insects?

Don’t forget to empty the pots after watering, fill in the areas of your garden where the most water collects with soil, place your animals’ water troughs indoors or in an area off the ground, keep the gutters clean to allow the water to drain away… The less standing water, the fewer mosquitoes.

TAKE CARE OF YOUR VEGETATION

Mosquitoes flee the sun and seek shelter in the shade. If your lawn is long and poorly maintained, you’ll see an invitation. The same goes for shrubs, prune them to their ideal height, especially those close to you. This keeps your garden in perfect condition and keeps mosquitoes away.

USE A FAN

The wind is an enemy of mosquitoes because it makes it very difficult for them to fly. In addition, the continuous flow of air makes it difficult for mosquitoes to penetrate. Place one near the area you are in at a low but steady speed. This way you always keep the environment fresh and mosquito-free.

INSECT REpellent

Obviously the best way to avoid mosquitoes is to use repellents. Whether in the air or on the body, using these products is a guarantee that you won’t get stung if you’ve also considered all of the recommendations above. If you want to enjoy your garden, consider using these products, which are also increasingly available in more practical formats such as bracelets or clothes.
