Enjoy Your Time Outdoors!
Nothing takes the fun out of an evening outdoors like a bunch of bloodthirsty mosquitoes biting you and your family. Mosquitoes pose a significant health risk since they can transmit diseases like West Nile Virus, Encephalitis, and the Zika virus. These diseases can be transmitted through a single bite. It’s important to identify and eliminate mosquito breeding sites around your property to help reduce mosquito populations.
Here are some ways to help minimize mosquitoes on your property:
- Keep your lawn and landscape pruned and maintained. Mosquitoes like to rest in areas that are overgrown and hold water.
- Keep your gutters clean and unclogged.
- Remove any containers from your property that are accumulating water.
- Change the water in birdbaths and wading pools at least once a week.
- Treat any standing water around swampy areas or drainage ditches with a larvicide.
- Keep your swimming pool clean and chlorinated.
- Adjust your sprinklers to avoid over-watering.
- Improve drainage in troublesome areas of your landscape.
- Aerate ornamental water features to keep water moving and discourage mosquitoes from laying eggs.
