How to Prepare Your Yard For Mosquito and Tick Season


Let’s see, you could cover your yard in a giant plastic dome.

Or require every family member to wear one of those full body hazmat suits whenever they’re in the yard.

Or just don’t breathe when you’re outside — mosquitoes detect your breath. 

On second thought, that all seems kind of drastic.

How to prepare your yard for mosquito and tick season in ways that don’t make you seem insane?

Climb out of that hazmat suit and let’s take a look.

Get Rid of the Stuff These Pests Love

Mosquitos and ticks love the same kinds of damp, dark, leafy hangouts. So take a stroll around your yard and prepare your yard for mosquitoes and ticks by removing their favorite things. (Note: Their favorite things are weird. They don’t care at all about Oreos.)

  • Take care of old tires; clogged gutters; buckets; wheelbarrows; empty flower pots and any other place where water accumulates. 

  • Remove leaf litter. They love that stuff.

  • Clear tall grasses and brush around your house and at the edge of your lawn.

  • Keep your lawn mowed.

  • Stack any wood neatly and in a dry area.

  • Avoid putting playground equipment, decks, and patios close to yard edges and trees where mosquitoes and ticks lurk.

  • Use fences to discourage unwelcome animals like deer, raccoons, rodents, and stray dogs from entering your yard. 

Treat Your Yard for Mosquitoes and Ticks

The best way to prepare your yard for mosquitoes and ticks is to take action and hire professionals who spray the spots in your yard where these annoying pests hang out.

Ticks and mosquitoes like the same type of habitat — damp, shady areas with access to moisture.

The seasonal fee is based on the size of your yard, with six treatments each year, spaced approximately every three weeks from spring to fall.
