Preparing Your Home for Mosquito Season
Summer is here! Before you head out to enjoy fun outdoor activities, you need to prepare your yard for Mosquitos!
Mosquito activity is at its highest during the summer months. Regardless of how you choose to spend your summer, you’re probably going to encounter the pesky bug. To cut down on risks on your property try these prevention techniques.
Take Care of Potential Breeding Grounds.
Standing water is a necessity for mosquitoes. Females looking to lay eggs seek out open, undisturbed water to begin the process of reproduction. To get ahead of mosquitos breeding in your neighborhood, remove all standing water sources. Check your property for items filled with stagnant water. Buckets, pet food bowls, rain gutters, and fountains are typically mosquitoes target. It only takes about a week to ten days for eggs to hatch, so act fast!
Avoiding mosquitos in your home is as simple as putting up a screen! Fit all the windows and doors in your home with a mesh screen. It’s a quick, easy solution for keeping mosquitoes out of your home. If you choose to install screens on your property, make sure there are no gaps. No matter how small these spaces are a mosquito will find a way through. Treat any gaps with screen patches or silicone.
