All along the east coast, spring has finally indicated that its return is nigh, and we are here for it. After the long march of winter, April truly signifies that we have turned a corner, but not all is well in the outdoors. As great as the warm weather is, we aren’t the only organisms that thrive in the warmth. Indeed, with warm weather comes the promise of bugs in abundance, and while not all are bad, some can pose a real threat to your outdoor living activities in the months ahead. By this point, you’ve probably guessed what creature we’re talking about. That’s right, mosquitoes are once again emerging from their eggs, so now is the time to prepare before they get a foothold in your yard.
Mosquitoes are uniquely challenging creatures to keep out of yards. Not only are they incredibly numerous, but they are also tiny and can fly; all factors that make them very difficult to control. Furthermore, they are probably reproducing in the habitat they can find in your yard! What does mosquito habitat look like, though? The primary thing to be aware of to reduce mosquitoes on your property is the presence of standing water. To reproduce, mosquitoes will lay their eggs in everything from lakes to tiny leaves that have collected water after a spring rain. Shaking out your yard’s foliage is a great way to discourage mosquitoes from breeding there. Further, mosquitoes will shelter in damp, wet areas of your yard like yard waste piles, clogged gutters, and others. As effective as this method can be, there are always mosquitoes traveling from property to property to replace the mosquitoes you remove. With this troublesome fact in mind, trust the experts with your mosquito control this spring, summer, and fall.
