Your Guide to Hosting a Mosquito-Free Backyard Barbecue

Summer is the perfect season for backyard barbecues, but unfortunately, it's also the peak season for mosquitoes and other pesky insects. Nothing can ruin a perfect evening outdoors like getting bitten by mosquitoes or constantly swatting away flies. But don't worry, Paragon Pest Control has got you covered! In this guide, we'll provide you with tips and tricks to keep your barbecue mosquito-free and enjoyable.

  • Tip 1: Eliminate Standing Water

Mosquitoes breed in stagnant water, so eliminate any sources of standing water around your yard. This includes emptying out any planters, bird baths, or other containers that can collect water. If you have a pool, make sure to keep it properly chlorinated and cleaned.

  • Tip 2: Keep Your Yard Clean

Mosquitoes and other insects thrive in cluttered and dirty environments. Make sure to regularly clean up your yard by trimming overgrown bushes and removing any debris. This will not only help to prevent mosquito breeding, but also discourage other pests from invading your space.

  • Tip 3: Use Insect Repellent

Insect repellent is a great way to keep mosquitoes and other bugs away from your barbecue. Look for repellents that contain DEET, picaridin, or oil of lemon eucalyptus, as these are the most effective ingredients. Make sure to apply the repellent on all exposed skin and clothing before going outside.

  • Tip 4: Invest in Fans

Mosquitoes are weak fliers, so investing in fans can help to keep them away from your barbecue. Set up fans around your seating area to create a breeze that mosquitoes won't be able to handle. This will also help to keep you and your guests cool on hot summer days.

  • Tip 5: Hire a Professional Pest Control Service

The most effective way to keep your barbecue mosquito-free is to hire a professional pest control service like Paragon Pest Control.
