Here are some tips for making your home less appetizing for mosquitoes.
Making a habit of inspecting your surroundings regularly and tipping and turning over items that can pool moisture which will prevent mosquitoes from breeding on your property. Keep in mind that an item no larger than a discarded soda pop lid can hold hundreds of mosquito eggs. We also encourage homeowners to check their gutters to make sure they are clean and free of debris. Clogged gutters permit moist leaves and debris to accumulate, as well as encouraging weed growth in the gutter itself. This combination makes the perfect recipe for a mosquito to lay her brood of eggs and increase the numbers of mosquitoes in your yard. Also avoid letting debris and brush pile up within your landscape. Keep your lawn cut at an appropriate height and keep shrubbery trimmed and groomed to discourage mosquitoes from taking up residence.
