Repelling mosquitoes may quickly become our main priority because they seem to like visiting our gardens and yards uninvited.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, there are approximately 3,000 unique mosquito species worldwide, 200 of which are found in the United States alone. Notwithstanding the itchy bites, they carry diseases, and their activity begins when temperatures drastically increase.

Thankfully, even though various species have distinct eating and activity habits, they still follow the same fundamental life cycle and have similar preferences for habitats, so we can manage them easily.
