March 23, 2013 — As the weather warms up mean mosquitoes are waking up and they’re out for blood! Mike McGrath reveals a great new way to minimize your mosquito misery. Plus your fabulous phone calls!
image Question of the Week I live in a row house with a small yard and raised bed vegetable garden that were completely overrun by Asian Tiger mosquitoes last summer. And I expect it to be just as bad if not worse this year. I am one of those people mosquitoes seem to love, and they attack me the minute I set foot in the yard. Even when I wear pants, long sleeves and a high concentration of DEET or Skin so Soft, I still get bit—and in broad daylight by these Asian Tiger buggers. The solutions I see online all involve putting stuff in the water where they lay their eggs, but we make sure not to HAVE any standing water on our property. Is there any way to combat these mosquitoes when you can’t find their water source? If I garlic spray my yard, will they let me garden in peace? I’d also love to be able to sit on our deck and enjoy a nice glass of wine without being overpowered by the scent of bug repellant. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Get the answer »
