Few things can steal your outdoor enjoyment in Georgia like mosquitoes. These biting insects are not only pesky, but they can carry harmful diseases. If your yard is plagued with swarming mosquitoes in the summer months but you want to avoid the harsh chemicals and heavy toxins of professional mosquito treatments, you’ll love these suggestions of natural remedies.

The following are some of the most effective “organic” methods for deterring mosquitoes from your landscape:

Essential Oils: Did you know that a mixture of lemon oil and eucalyptus oil creates a natural mosquito repellant? The same is true for essential oils like lavender, spearmint, orange and cedarwood. While essential oils only provide a few hours of repellant, that is enough to host a party or play a family yard game without these intruding insects.

Control Your Own Scent: Speaking of scents, there are also aromas that attract mosquitoes. If you want to save your skin from frequent mosquito bites, limit your perfumes, colognes and other strong scents that may be luring unwanted insects.

Fight with Fire: While we never endorse playing with fire, it is true that insects don’t like smoke and flames. To safely use fire as a solution for mosquito control at your next gathering, consider lighting up your outdoor bonfire or Tiki torches.

Eliminate Mosquito Breeding Grounds: Perhaps the most important step to limit mosquitoes in your yard is to nix their breeding grounds. This means getting rid of standing water, such as pools, birdbaths or puddles from malfunctioning gutters or an uneven yard.

For more mosquito control tips that are safe for your family, call the experts of Mobile Joe’s Landscaping. We can help you deter these pesky insects so that you can enjoy your outdoor space to the fullest!

Joe Archer has built a great family business by treating his customer very well. They do a great job, are consistent, are reliable and are friendly. When we've had big family events, Joe takes as much pride in how our yard will look as we do...came by twice a week before a wedding to make sure things looked tops. Uses reel mowers, not rotary, to have the most even look. Use Mobile Joe!!!!

Michael DePadro

I have known Joe for over 10 years. In the past 10 years Joe has completed 3 large landscaping projects for us. My wife and I would never consider using anyone else as Joe does excellent work is dependable and is easily reached if you need to call him for anything. We can highly recommend Joe for any landscape design project or for excellent on going lawn care. Joe's team uses reel mowers so your lawn looks like a golf course fairway when his team is taking care of your lawn maintenance. I have recommended Joe to several friends who have used Joe for small landscape projects and for landscape projects that went into the six figure range. Everyone that I have referred to Joe has been very pleased with his work so give him a call if you are looking for a dependable landscaper.

I was interviewing and getting proposals from landscaping companies for a full front yard renovation at my home. Joe by far seemed the most knowledgeable and experienced of the companies I spoke with - and the friendliest. He laid out different options to meet my budget. His prices were great as well. His team did a great job, showed up on time, and cleaned up where you could not even tell they were there - other than a complete beatiful new front yard landscape with stone walls, new plantings, grass, and trees. Looks awesome! Thanks Mobile Joe!

Mark French

Mobile Joe's Landscaping has taken care of all my landscaping needs for many years - and I highly recommend Joe and his team! Mobile Joe's has designed and implemented various landscape install projects as well as performed all the maintenance at each of the three homes I've owned in north Fulton beginning in the early 1990s. I have no doubt that Joe's expertise in both hardscape and softscape has added significant value to my properties and I'm extremely appreciative for all the attention to detail and great execution that Mobile Joe's Landscaping is known for here in the Roswell / Alpharetta area. These guys truly care about meeting and exceeding customer expectation!
