Tick and Mosquito Control Jacksonville Begins with Good Habits Around Your Home
Rain and humidity produce ideal conditions around your home for potentially harmful pests to thrive. As expert tick and mosquito control providers in Jacksonville, here are a few good practices to keep in force outside your home courtesy of Jacksonville tick control and mosquito control Jacksonville.
Be sure to control pooling or puddling water around your home and yard. You want to keep your exterior areas as dry and water-free as possible. Empty kiddy pools when you are done for the day and drain them in a downflow area so that the water evaporates quickly. And be sure your pool is well chlorinated, and that the pump is working. Agitate ponds and fountains so that the water keeps moving as the constant movement will deter mosquitoes from laying their eggs there.
To repeat – keep it dry when you can and keep outdoor water sources moving and circulating.
