Once you start getting bitten, it’s probably too late for the best way to get rid of mosquitoes —prevention. However, don’t give up on getting rid of them just yet. End your mosquito problem by replacing your natural lawn with Tampa synthetic grass!

Solve Your Mosquito Problem with Artificial Grass

Mosquitoes can be terribly annoying, especially when all you want to do is relax on your beautiful lawn. Not only can they ruin your outdoor time, but they can also carry numerous viruses and diseases.

Unfortunately, it can be difficult to eliminate mosquito breeding grounds when you have a natural lawn. Real grass creates the perfect conditions for a mosquito infestation: standing water, tall grass, leaf debris and more. Unless you stay on top of maintenance or have the budget for professional pest control, you can have a recurring mosquito problem on your hands.

The most effective way to get rid of mosquitoes is not to give them a chance to breed in the first place. Artificial turf in Tampa, FL can help you achieve this in several ways:

  • It drains all standing water.

    Mosquitoes love those puddles left over after a rain shower or watering the yard. Never assume there’s none in your yard. Mosquito larvae and pupae can multiply in moist places as little as a leaf.

    Therefore, the first step towards controlling mosquitoes is to drain all standing water in your lawn. Synthetic grass simplifies this part. It has a porous layer that drains water quickly. With no moisture on your lawn, mosquitoes have nowhere to breed.

  • It keeps the yard well-trimmed.

    If standing water is where mosquitoes breed, then tall grasses and shrubbery are where they like to hang out. Since Tampa synthetic grass never grows and will always stay at your preferred height, mosquitoes have nowhere to hide.

  • It supports mosquito-repellent plants.

    Another way to keep these pests out is to bring mosquito-repelling plants in. Artificial grass can handle the weight of planter boxes and heavy pots well. Basil, citronella, lavender, marigold and lemon balm are fragrant additions to any garden. They’re also unattractive to mosquitoes, so that’s a double win.

Enjoy a Pest-Free Yard with Artificial Grass

Aside from solving your mosquito problem, synthetic turf protects your yard from other pests. For instance, it’s inhospitable to insects and common pests like rats. This applies to all artificial grass products, like a dog run or a putting green in Tampa.
