Natural ways to rid yard of mosquitoes


Tree roots can become a problem when they begin to grow in undesirable directions, such as into a septic tank or sewer line or under a sidewalk. Roots can also remain as unsightly reminders of a tree long since cut down or removed. Depending whether you are removing roots from a living tree or trying to remove dead and decaying roots, you can use several natural tactics.

The most natural and effective way to get rid of undesirable roots in a living tree is to selectively cut and remove those roots. Using caustic chemicals or poisons to remove select roots is not possible if you intend to keep the tree itself, as you will poison the entire tree. Dig down to and around the roots and cut them, using a handsaw or chainsaw, as you would a limb. Bear in mind, however, removing live roots may harm or even kill the tree.

Once you have removed an undesirable tree root, you must install a barrier to prevent the root from regrowing in the same direction. Purchase heavy-duty tree root barriers from a lawn and garden or farm supply store. These are heavy pieces of plastic that can be placed around a root or the entire root ball to prevent offshoots from growing in a specific direction.

In a nutshell, these are the most effective ways to eradicate moles in your yard. Get rid of moles army invading your property and realize your dream of a perfect lawn!

I spent $400.00 for Terminex to come to my property and was told they would trap and remove the moles. A few days later a kid came out and set some flags, then the next day one came and put some of the worms in the holes. They did this several times. Sold the property a year later and still had the moles..

A friend of mine had the same thing happen. Spent $500 on an exterminator and a few months later had moles again. They are a scam, or just plain expensive to maintain regular services.

Frequent Inspection.  Catch them early. One “colonizer” can produce up to 80 offspring in as little as a week and is capable of doing so several times. Slowly walk through your garden several times a week, paying close attention to the undersides of leaves. Also check for aphids on newly purchased plants and transplants.

Don’t over-fertilize.  Aphids prefer the new growth that is found in abundance in overly fertilized plants. Use only slow-release fertilizers. It is also a good idea to grow plants inside or under a cover until they are large enough to be a little more tolerant of pests.

Spray with water.  A strong spray of water is an effective way to dislodge aphids from your plants. Most dislodged aphids will be unable to return to the plant. The Bug Blaster is a hose attachment that works great for this.

Chipmunks are actually a member of the squirrel family, but when we say “squirrels” we usually mean the bushy-tailed, tree climbing members of the family. Chipmunks are smaller, striped/spotted rodents that tend to stay on the ground rather than jumping from tree to tree like red and gray squirrels do.

If you actually like the Chipmunks version of all your favorite Christmas songs, then you’re probably the type who is going to try live traps, otherwise known as box traps or mesh wire traps. If you’re like me and you’ve found yourself fantasizing about the various ways you might murder Alvin, Simon, or Theodore while you sit in a cheap diner listening to them screech their way through another rendition of Silent Night, then you’ll probably want to use rat traps. Before you do anything, check with your local conservation officer to make sure trapping chipmunks is legal where you are.

Organic repellents for small rodents like chipmunks are plentiful on the internet. The problem is finding an organic repellent (or any repellent for that matter) that actually works. A lot of organic repellents use the urine of larger predatory animals like the fox or the wolf. Switching from one repellent to the other on a regular basis seems to be more effective than sticking to just one type of repellent; however, I wouldn’t rely on expensive repellents to get rid of chipmunks forever. If you’d like to give it a try, though, Amazon sells Shake-Off Coyote/Fox granules for a good price.

Ants: bringing ruination to picnics the world over. They aren’t necessarily harmful, per se, but if they get into your house, they become an unsightly, unsanitary problem that can be difficult to tackle.

Left untreated, they can end up infesting your home in a widescale epidemic, leaving you desperate to find out how to get rid of ants.

Because ants are colonial creatures, seeing one ant means there are probably many, many more close by. As soon as you see an ant crawling through your house, you’ll want to take action immediately because it’s likely a “scout” and the first sign of an infestation.
