Nothing takes the fun out of an outdoor evening barbecue like a bunch of
bloodthirsty mosquitoes. In addition to inflicting a painful bite, mosquitoes can
transmit diseases like West Nile virus, encephalitis, and the Zika virus. These diseases can be transmitted through a single bite. Because mosquitoes require water to breed, here are some practical ways to eliminate water sources in your yard
- Keep gutters clean and unclogged.
- Keep swimming pools cleaned and chlorinated, even when not in use.
- Aerate ornamental water features to keep water moving, to discourage mosquitoes from laying eggs.
- Dump anything that holds water, such as birdbaths, wading pools and outdoor pottery, twice per week if it has rained.
Despite these measures, mosquitoes are going to be an unavoidable part of summer. Agropro offers mosquito control programs designed to control and repel mosquitoes so you can enjoy your property. Each treatment will give you up to 28 days of protection.
