Your Garden Is Attracting Mosquitoes

First off, you should know that hedges, bushes, and tall grass in your garden are the perfect homes for mosquitoes. This notion is because, during the day, they like to get out of the sun and hide in a place that provides ample cover for them. 

Make sure you are keeping your hedges and bushes pruned, and mow your lawn once a week. Minimizing the shady options for mosquitoes is your first call, and it will make your garden look great as well, so it’s a win-win situation.
