Your Backyard May Be Breeding Mosquitoes

It May be Your Backyard That is Breeding Mosquitoes

Many homeowners struggle with mosquito bites in their backyard in the Greensboro, High Point, and Winston Salem areas of North Carolina. Many times the homeowner thinks the mosquitoes are breeding somewhere else and are flying into their yard from somewhere else to bite them, but sometimes that is not the case.

Quite simply, it is standing water on a property that is the reason mosquitoes may be breeding on your property. Did you know that a bottle cap of water can breed as many as 300 mosquitoes? It does not take much. A small item somewhere on your property, that you may be missing, can hold enough water to create a major issue of mosquito bites.

Try to eliminate items like child toys, buckets, tarps, and pots. Or, turn them over and make sure they are not collecting water. This step can go a long way to controlling mosquitoes on your property. Mosquito Squad recommends following the 7 T’s of mosquito control.
