How to Get Rid of Mosquitoes Around the Door
- Spray around the door entirely both inside and outside. When mosquitoes get around the door and get in the spray they will definitely not be bothering you anymore.
- Keep any grass around the door short. Cut the grass to prevent it from being a mosquito haven.
- Remove any standing water.
- Distract the mosquitoes.
Subsequently, question is, how are mosquitoes getting in my house? Mosquitoes are singularly adept at entering houses through any portal available, be it through broken window or door screens, attic soffits or through bathroom exhaust vents. A favorite resting spot is the garage, so take care to keep resting female mosquitoes from coming into the house through the garage.
In this manner, why do mosquitoes hang out at my front door?
Chances are, your front door or back door has a light right beside it. This light will attract mosquitoes and all kinds of other insects, meaning they'll all be buzzing right around your door, ready to rush inside when you open it.
Where do mosquitoes hide in the house during the day?
Most mosquitoes are active at night or at dusk and dawn, and rest or sleep during the day. They look for sheltered places, such as brush or thick weeds, caves or rock shelters, holes in the ground, hollow logs or holes in trees.
