Eco-Friendly Mosquito Reduction Options for Your Charlotte Home

As the warmer months approach, so does the pesky presence of mosquitoes. In Charlotte, North Carolina, where humid summers create the ideal breeding ground for these insects, finding effective and eco-friendly ways to reduce mosquitoes might seem impossible. Fortunately, there are several methods that not only help keep mosquitoes at bay but also reduce their populations. Here are some quick, easy options for mosquito reduction around your property.

Mosquito Reduction Tips

Plants that Deter Mosquitoes

Certain plants possess natural properties that repel mosquitoes, making them valuable additions to your yard. Incorporating these plants adds beauty to your property, helps keep mosquitoes at bay, and helps attract more pollinators to your yard. We recommend starting out with lavender, citronella grass, marigolds, and lemon balm to limit mosquitoes in your yard!

Limit Standing Water

Mosquitoes breed in stagnant water, so eliminating or reducing standing water in your yard is crucial for effective mosquito control. Here are some steps you can take to limit stagnant water:

  • Empty and clean birdbaths, flowerpot saucers, and other containers that collect water regularly
  • Keep gutters clean and free of debris to prevent water from building up
  • Ensure proper drainage in your yard to prevent puddle from forming
  • Cover or overturn items like buckets, wheelbarrows, and children’s toys when not in use

Go the No-Spray Way

The In2Care Mosquito Trap System is a green, alternative solution to eliminating mosquitoes throughout your property or business. The trap itself is unique as it lures mosquitoes into the system with a special green solution that is placed inside. Once mosquitoes enter the system, the green solution transfers to the mosquito’s legs, where it then spreads to the other breeding sites. The spread of this treatment eliminates adult mosquitoes and prevents larva mosquitoes from developing further. The In2Care System provides your property with:

  • A no-spray, discrete solution
  • Reduction of all mosquito life stages – from larva to adult
  • Strategic placement around property offering 24/7/365 protection
  • Pollinator- and pet-friendly solutions!
