  1. If you have a rain barrel or hoewver many under your gutter runoff you can collect water like that. When you have it full to keep mosquitoes out of it and to kill any mosquitoes in it, put a tablespoon of cooking oil on it and it will seal’ the surface of the water. Also, when you mow, keep your blade on a high setting and not give your lawn a crewcut; and leave the clippings, if they come out in big piles rake them around so they are evenly dispursed, like a little mulching. Try shredding some leaves very finely and spread this around also.Sprinkle your coffee and tea grounds on the lawn also. They will go right in, but son’t do this all the time or it will make your soil acidic.I could go on and on, but that’s a start .
