Mosquitoes stay in the area where they are born, about a 150 foot range. To drastically reduce the number of them, we place traps around our yard in late Spring to prevent the larvae from hatching. To see our Love for a Country House YouTube channel, follow this link.
If you can catch the first wave early it’s very good, but you can also set these traps all summer to minimize swarms of mosquitoes.
For one trap we used a galvanized pail. It’s a nice match with our cottage garden style.
We add water but leave enough room at the top for a few inches of rainfall.
By leaving room at the top, the trap doesn’t tend to overflow. Meanwhile, it evaporates on dry days too.
