How to Get Rid of Mosquitoes Inside Your House

Eliminating mosquitoes inside your house is essential to maintain a healthy and comfortable living environment. Mosquitoes can be a nuisance indoors, but there are several steps you can take to get rid of them. Here are some tips for keeping your home mosquito-free.

Mosquitoes can be killed in standing water by using a biological control such as Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis, which is discussed in this article about “What kills mosquitoes in standing water?”.

Remove Standing Water

Mosquitoes need water to lay their eggs, so it’s important to remove any standing water that may be present in your home. This includes buckets, containers, and even pet bowls. You should also check around your home for any areas where water may be pooling and take steps to drain it.

Check for Openings


Mosquitoes can easily enter your home through small openings or cracks in the walls, windows, or doors. Inspect your home for any such openings and seal them with caulk or weatherstripping.

Use a Fan

To keep mosquitoes away, you can use a fan to create a breeze. Mosquitoes are weak fliers and the fan will make it difficult for them to stay airborne.

Install Mesh Screens

Mesh screens can be installed on windows and doors to prevent mosquitoes from entering your home. Make sure the screens fit securely and that there are no gaps or tears.

Use Traps

Mosquito traps can be used to catch and kill mosquitoes in your home. These traps use light and carbon dioxide to attract the mosquitoes and then suck them in with a fan.


By following these tips, you can keep your home mosquito-free and enjoy the summer months without the nuisance of mosquitoes.

Mosquitoes biting

Mosquitoes have a well-earned reputation as one of the most frustrating pests on the planet. Even in the UK, where mosquitoes thankfully aren’t spreading malaria, their biting, blood-sucking, and high-pitched whining when they fly close to our ears are enough to drive anyone crazy. If you find mosquitoes in your home, it’s only natural to want them gone as soon as possible. Their small size makes mosquitoes difficult to spot, even if you can hear them. Fortunately, there are several simple things you can do to deter mosquitoes from building their nests on your property.

How to get rid of mosquitoes inside your house

The first thing to do is make sure no more mosquitoes are going to be joining the party. Like other insects, they tend to enter homes in the evening after the sun’s gone down. Keeping all your doors and windows tightly shut will deny them entry. You can also use special mosquito nets to prevent them from entering while still letting in the fresh air. You should also check your home and garden for pools of stagnant water; these make ideal mosquito breeding grounds. Fill in any ditches and holes in your garden where water can pool.

Mosquitoes can be killed in standing water with the addition of Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis (Bti) larvicide, as discussed in this article about what kills mosquitoes in water.

Use plants as mosquitoes repellants

Several plant species act as mosquito repellants; marigolds, lemongrass, citronella, mint, and catnip are all effective deterrents against mosquitoes. Many people have also had success using lemons and clothes. Slice a lemon in half and push cloves into each half.

You can make a natural, organic insecticide from crushed garlic. Boil the garlic in water for half an hour and leave it standing until it cools. Add the resulting liquid to a spray bottle, and you have a cheap, effective insecticide. While it has a pungent aroma and kills mosquitoes effectively, it dissipates rapidly, and the smell doesn’t linger for long.

Mosquito Control 

How to get rid of mosquitoes? Mosquitoes come in a variety of species, and this article explains the different types of mosquitoes.

Mosquito control is the practice of managing the population of mosquitoes to reduce the risk of diseases such as malaria, dengue, yellow fever, and Zika virus, which are transmitted by the bite of an infected mosquito.

Public health and environmental agencies, local communities, and researchers collaborate to effectively control mosquitoes and prevent the spread of deadly diseases. This comprehensive, integrated approach involves targeted larval control, the use of insecticides, biological control agents, and the introduction of genetically-modified mosquitoes.

We thought we had bedbugs but could find no evidence apart from what we thought were bites. I called Bon Accord and Gabriel was there within a couple of hours. He told us we had carpet beetle. Finding the evidence and showing us photos of the skin reaction which was exactly what we had. He advised and returned at a time to suit us to spray which was done thoroughly and efficiently. No sign of the little critters returning. Thank you Gabriel.

Gabriel was absolutely wonderful, a real life saver when I found a mouse by my bed at 10pm. He came in less than an hour and was able to catch the mouse and put my mind at rest so I could go to sleep! Highly recommend, fab service and lovely people.

Gabriel turned up with an hours notice one evening and immediately identified the issued. He works efficiently and professionally throughout with timely follow-ups to ensure the problem was resolved. Once completed he was kind enough to continue to check in to see that the issue had gone. Having had Rentokil previously that spent two years doing very little this was a complete breathe of fresh air and solved the problem in less than two weeks. We are grateful and would highly recommend his services.

We were lucky to have found Bon Accord, they responded very fast to our request and Gabriel was very helpful and informative. He made several visits and did his absolute best until the mice problem we had was gone. Highly recommended.
