9 Ways to Wage War Against Mosquitoes — and Win!

Mosquitoes are nasty creatures. They bite, transmit terrible diseases to people and pets and, from what I read, have no redeeming value in the ecosystem.

Malaria, transmitted by the female mosquito, infects some 247 million people worldwide each year and, in 2018, killed 405,000 people. Mosquitoes spread yellow fever, dengue fever, Japanese encephalitis, Rift Valley fever, chikungunya virus and West Nile virus.

If that’s not reason enough to hate them, they can turn a beautiful backyard, deck or patio into a nightmare area not fit for humans during mosquito season. But it doesn’t have to be that way — provided you are diligent to take control of your home and property.
