Prevention Tips for Mosquitoes in Tennessee
The fear of being bitten by a mosquito can ruin your outdoor adventures during summer nights in Tennessee. Knowing how to prevent them can ease the stress and get you right back to the fun!
To deter mosquitoes from your yard, consider treating your lawn with insecticide. This can keep mosquitoes away from both your yard and inside your home. Alternatively, you can add plants to your yard that help repel mosquitos from your yard. Lavender, lemongrass, basil, and marigolds are all plants that might help keep mosquitoes away.
How do mosquitoes come inside?
The most common way mosquitoes enter your home is through open windows and doors. It’s hard to spot them, as they typically come in and out of the house as you do. We recommend utilizing window screens so you can still enjoy a breeze without worrying about mosquitoes sneaking their way in. It’s also important to make sure there are no gaps around your windows and door; these are also easy entry points for mosquitoes.
Mosquitoes are most active at dusk and during the night. Once the sun goes down, make sure to close all of your doors and windows tightly. Because windy conditions make it difficult for mosquitoes to move around and locate their prey, fans are a good option to keep mosquitoes away. You can also add mosquito nets around your windows or around your bed for extra protection.
