Mosquito Sheriff talks about National Gardening Week!

National gardening week is held the first full week in June. National garden week was established in 1981 and has branched out in over 19 states. The National Garden club offers college sponsorships and grants for students planting pollinator gardens. As this week comes to an end, Mosquito Sheriff would like to highlight all the wonderful aspects of safe gardening.

Mosquito Sheriff is the leader in All- Natural pest control.

We are the first and only green and ecofriendly service using non-toxic products to eliminate mosquitos and ticks. Our products are safe for the environment, children, pets, and most importantly the pollinators. We take into consideration the essential insects that keep our ecosystem moving. When you think about gardening and the plants that these pollinators need to survive, you think about Mosquito Sheriff. Our products are safe to be sprayed on or around your gardens with no concern for them or these essential insects.

Celebrating National Garden week can be done in many ways. Not only can you create a beautiful indoor garden, but you can also plant an outdoor garden, or explore your local community garden. Other fun ideas would be to get your children involved in experiments or activities with planting seeds or watching things grow. There are a lot of great sources available that will be linked in this blog today.

First on the list is an indoor garden. You can plant some fun herbs in pots along the window. You can start beans and have your family watch them grow. There are many wonderful options when choosing your indoor garden. The top on my list is always aloe vera. There are so many wonderful remedies that can come from fresh cut aloe. You can use this plant for first aid, cosmetics, and even health. This is a great first indoor garden plant to investigate.

National Gardening Week’s Indoor Garden Plant Options:

  • Calathea Rattlesnake
  • Golden Pothos
  • Snake Plant

Next, we will talk about building your home garden. This one is my favorite. I love to create my home garden every year. It is a family tradition at our house. We do a mixture of a flower garden and a vegetable garden. There is no wrong answer when you are choosing. There are certain plants that will deter mosquitos and ticks from your yard that you should keep on hand in your garden. These plants are also delicious and smell wonderful too! It is a win-win.

Finally let’s talk about going on a garden tour. There are many beautiful gardens in your local community or state that you can tour. There are local gardens your community holds for individuals who do not have space to maintain one on their property; or there are farms in your state that you can visit. Pro Tip- sometimes these places also have delicious ice cream*** Some states even have great butterfly gardens with beautiful flowers. You will be amazed at what you can find if you explore the gardens in your state and local community.

All things considered; I want to close out today’s blog with a few tips to consider when you go outside to the garden. As I have shown this season is the worst on record for ticks. There are more tickborne diseases to be concerned about. Check yourself when you come in from gardening, wear protective clothing, and spray your yard with your local Mosquito Sheriff.









– I love what they are doing! Totally Behind them! If each spray can help other communities and also solve your problems too without any extra cost. What else one can ask for. I have booked them for the entire season. So Excited!!

– I was looking for a Non-Toxic/Natural way to handle the mosquitos and ticks problem as my children and pets are always in the garden, so my friend recommended me to this company, they shared a lot of information and insight and the process was easy to follow.
