All Natural Mosquito Protection for Your Yard

All Natural Mosquito Protection for Your Yard

It's that time of year again. The flowers are blooming, the sun is shining, and the mosquitos are attacking. Between water play, gardening, and eating meals on our back porch, my family spends a lot of time outside during the warmer months. When we first moved into our current home, I remember going outside to pick up pears from our pear tree and literally running back inside because the mosquitos flocked to me as soon as I walked out the door. I carry a natural bug spray with me wherever we go during the spring and summer months, but I often forget to apply it to me and the kids when we are just out and about in the yard. I started doing some research on natural mosquito protection for our yard and found out that my friend over at Mosquito Squad actually offers a garlic based mosquito treatment. We've been trying it out this year and have been super pleased with the results. I love that I don't have to worry about synthetic chemicals around my garden or kids, but I still get the protection that we need. 

Here's a little more about the all-natural treatment: 

1) The all-natural, garlic based treatment is applied to the areas of our property where mosquitoes are known to hang out. After initial application, there is a faint garlic smell that dissipates after a few hours. 

2) They come to my house every two weeks to apply the treatment and it provides 70% elimination (the synthetic version provides 90%). This is huge because there have been more and more reports of people being infected with the diseases that mosquitoes and ticks carry (i.e. lyme, rocky mount spotted fever, etc.). 

3) It is safe for our kids and our garden (yay for edible herbs and veggies!) and helps reduce the amount of pesticides that we carry into our home from the yard.

Our yard went from being a place that we didn't want to spend a ton of time in during the summer, to a place where we can hang out and enjoy time with one another.
