As summer approaches, so does the threat of everyone's most detested creature: the mosquito. They buzz, they bite, and, worst of all, they're everywhere during the warmer months. Don't fear, because there are several ways to keep the mosquito population in your vicinity at bay. Alternative EarthCare explores four ways to repel mosquitoes away from your yard.

1. Air curtains or netting. Keep the mosquitoes from entering your space with the use of mosquito netting or air curtains. Air curtains create a barrier of air that prevents bugs from getting past, whereas netting is too small and intricately woven for the mosquitoes to fly through. Always make sure to check for any holes as this will decrease effectivity.

2. Mosquito traps. Portable mosquito traps entice and then trap them, ultimately causing them to die. It can take up to a month to see significant results but is one of the easiest and cheapest options. For a do-it-yourself version, simply place a bowl of soapy water outside to lure them in with water and kill them with the chemicals in the soap.

3. Citronella. Whether you are purchasing candles to burn outside, applying the oil to your outdoor furniture, or planting lemongrass for your own use, using citronella will work to deter the mosquitoes.

4. Schedule a spraying. If nothing seems to work, or if you just want the job done quickly and on a large-scale, call a professional organic pest control company and schedule a yard mosquito spraying. There are several organic, non-toxic methods that can be employed to save your lawn and still ward off mosquitoes, including garlic and other natural repelling agents. These sprays will help to drastically reduce the mosquito population in your yard for up to an entire month. Monthly sprayings are best to get you through the spring and summer season pest and bite-free.
