Mosquitoes aren’t just annoying, they’re dangerous. Their bites can carry diseases that affect humans and animals, such as the West Nile and Zika viruses. You can keep your property mosquito-free and family safe this summer with a few easy tips.
Remove Standing Water
Mosquitoes need water to lay their eggs, so limit their breeding habitat by removing standing water in your yard. Keep gutters and birdbaths clean, dry out puddles and empty trash or plant containers of water to decrease the options for mosquito breeding.
Trim Grass and Shrubs
Adult mosquitos rest during the day, when it’s hottest. They need tall weeds and grass to sit on, so keep your yard trimmed. They also enjoy shrubs and bushes; trimming them will take away their resting places as well.
Hire a Pest Control Expert
The best way to eliminate the mosquito population around your property is to hire a professional. A pest control expert uses biological and chemical methods of exterminating both larvae and adult mosquitoes. They can also identify unseen breeding areas and take steps to remove those.
