How to minimise the breeding of mosquitoes in your premises

To get rid of mosquitoes in your home, the best solution is to prevent them from breeding around your home and to prevent them from entering your home. 

  • Avoid being bitten by mosquitoes: -

    • When outside at dusk or dawn, wear long sleeves, trousers, footwear and hats to reduce exposed skin. 
    • Use mosquito repellent sprays on exposed skin. 
    • Use mosquito repelling products or candles when sitting
  • Prevent mosquitoes being able to develop in standing water:

    • Ensure drains are kept clear and running. 
    • Ensure gutters and water gullies are not blocked. 
    • Cover water butts with a lid. 
    • Do not leave standing water (e.g. in watering cans). 
    • Introduce mosquito fish (Gambusia affinis) or guppies into garden ponds to eat mosquito larvae.
  • Finally, you can help prevent mosquitoes entering your home: 

    • After dark, keep windows and doors closed or block out the light with curtains. 
    • Fit mosquito screens to windows.
