The Q&A Archives: Ridding Yard of Pesky Flies and Mosquitoes

Question: I live in the California high desert. We would like to eliminate the flies and mosquitoes in the patio where we barbeque, and near our pond.

Answer: You can use outdoor foggers, house and garden products, and flying insect space sprays on the patio, and in the yard for effective control against mosquitoes and flies. There are mosquito killing rings that you can float in your pond to reduce, if not eliminate mosquito larvae. Goldfish do an excellent job of eating mosquito larva, too. Best wishes with your next barbeque!
