Can Neighbors Hamper Your Mosquito Control Efforts?

December 20, 2023

With so much to look forward to this summer, plans are being made and activities are being chosen. For many in our region, the outdoors beckon like never before when the warmer weather returns and much of the time we spend outside will be in our outdoor living spaces. If you have a yard or some other outdoor space to enjoy, you can host parties, hang out with family, and simply relax whenever you wish. With such variety available to you, make sure you consider all the facets necessary to create the ideal outdoor living experience. You might be wondering what on earth could ruin your outdoor lifestyle, but the answer is pretty obvious: Mosquitoes. Just like clockwork, mosquitoes return with a vengeance every time winter fades, spelling trouble for our time in the outdoors. Whining and biting with aplomb, mosquitoes brazenly go from victim to victim sucking blood with little regard for their safety and ours. Female mosquitoes require blood to lay their eggs, which means the blood you unwillingly give them directly benefits their efforts to raise their young.

Disgusting feeding behavior aside, mosquitoes are carrying diseases with greater frequency, which adds another dangerous element to these insects. As if being swarmed by a group of mosquitoes wasn’t enough, contracting a mosquito-borne disease is a disturbing reality we know face in the Northeast, emphasizing how important it is to try and defend against these insects. How, though, can you try and keep mosquitoes away? The first things that pop into people’s minds are often citronella candles, bug zappers, and other devices that are rather ineffective at defending against mosquitoes. Many mosquito treatments try to solve the symptoms, not the source of the problem. Fortunately, there are great solutions available to you.

For example, the best way to defend against mosquitoes is with yard spray. When applied around your property and on mosquito habitat, mosquito yard spray can be very effective, especially when applied by professionals. However, there is another component to this issue you need to consider. Mosquitoes are very mobile, and the puddles or unmaintained pool in your neighbor’s yard could be breeding the mosquito swarms you see in your yard. Mosquito control is often a community-wide effort, so it doesn’t hurt to gently approach a neighbor to recommend that they try to solve the mosquito problem to help yours as well.
