The Q&A Archives: Mosquito Control

Question: I havce lots of mosquitoes in the yard and I don't have standing water. What chemical do you suggest I use to KILL these pesty critters. they are sucking the blood out of me. So, don't be easy on them. they must go.

Answer: I wish I could recommend something that would eliminate mosquitoes from your yard but it's a neighborhood problem. Even if you used a mosquito controlling insecticide in your yard, new ones will fly in from the neighboring yards. According to the University of Florida, every city and county has a mosquito abatement program where they periodically spray entire neighborhoods. You can phone your local extension office or county office to find out the scheduled spray times or to request your neighborhood be sprayed. Wish I could offer more help!
