Mosquito Prevention

The most effective way of dealing with an existing mosquito problem is by using electric fly killers. Our Lumnia Fly Killer range uses Rentokil's unique encapsulation technology or glue boards together with innovative LED technology to capture and kill mosquitoes quickly and efficiently.

However, what can you do to help stop these pesky insects from becoming a nuisance in the first place, or from returning once you’ve got rid of them?

Top Tips to Keep Mosquitos at Bay

  • Keep windows closed - After dark, keep windows and doors closed or block out the light with curtains.

  • Insect screens - Fit fly screens to windows.

  • Clear up - Clear up dead mosquitoes, as they provide a tasty snack for other pests such as carpet beetles.

  • Cover water - Cover water butts with well fitted lids to prevent mosquito larvae in the water.

  • No standing water - Do not leave standing water (in watering cans for example) as this gives mosquitoes a good place to breed.

  • Natural predators - If you have a garden pond, think about getting some goldfish as they will eat mosquito larvae.

  • Natural repellents - Try natural repellents such as citronella, neem oil, peppermint oil, lemon eucalyptus oil, witch hazel, garlic, lavender and vanilla extract.
