Comprehensive Guide on How to Get Rid of Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes Control Canberra–Tips to get rid of Mosquitoes

As you may or not be aware mosquitoes are pests that can spread harmful disease along with the after effect of the bite being itchy and uncomfortable. To get rid of mosquitoes in a small area is easier than you might think, here are a few tips to assist you to win the battle against the dreaded mossie.

Examples of mosquito breeding grounds:

  • Oldtyres that are left outside may fill with water
  • Driveway puddles
  • Empty flowerpot saucers as they can hold water for days at a time
  • Dump or flush out any stagnant water sources in your yard

If you’re inundated by mosquitoes or gnats due to standing water from street curbs, drainage ditches or other pools you can’t really control you could toss in a couple of toilet bowl tablets. This seems to work quiet well.

Black Hole Mosquitoes Trap

  • By producing CO2, the Black Hole lures and traps mosquitoes and sandflies, but may also catch other flying insects such as flies and moths which are attracted by the black light.
  • Black Hole Mosquito Traps are a safe and effective alternative to pesticide treatments and are placed inside or outside homes, offices, gardens, swimming pools and all outdoor eating areas.
  • They are especially effective in areas where mosquito population is very high.
  • Best area coverage: 66 square meters to 165 square metres.
  • The light globes lasts for over three hundred hours, and are available from most lighting shops.
    The Black Hole is available in Canberra, just ring us on 0407 065 413 and order one over the phone.

Mosquitoes….”I was at a party some time ago, and mosquitoes were partying right along, biting everyone. A man at the party sprayed the lawn and veranda floor with Listerine, and the little demons disappeared. I went home and filled a spray bottle and used it around my seat whenever I saw mosquitoes. And voila! That worked as well.. It worked at a picnic where we sprayed the area around the food table, the children’s swing area, and the standing water nearby. During the summer, I don’t leave home without it….Pass it on.”

….”I tried this on my deck and around all of my doors. It works – in fact, it killed them instantly. I bought my bottle from Target and it doesn’t cost much. It really doesn’t take much, and it is a big bottle, too; so it is not as expensive to use as the can of bug-spray you buy that doesn’t last 30 minutes.

So, try this. It will last a couple of days. Don’t spray directly on a wood door (like your front door), but spray around the frame. Spray around the window frames, and even inside the dog house.”
