Are Mosquitoes Breeding Around Your Home?

Author: Mosquito Squad of Waukesha County & Milwaukee North Shore

Mosquitoes can multiply rapidly. They prefer to lay their eggs in and around water. Most eggs will hatch within 24-48 hours and this cycle continues with optimal conditions. Items as small as a soda cap holding water will be enough for them to lay their eggs in. It is important for homeowners to walk around and survey property removing anything that would be holding water in an attempt to reduce mosquitoes from propagation.

Mosquito Squad are leading experts when it comes to mosquito and tick controls. We are ahead of the game for awareness. We have many insights as to what possible breeding grounds are around your home. We have information on our website to help identify and eradicate mosquito breeding areas called the 5 T's of mosquito control. This was developed to aide homeowners in identifying areas of concern.

In addition to the 5 T's, there are some areas not on the list which could cause concern as well.

Corrugated gutter extensions should be inspected regularly to be sure they are properly installed and draining efficiently. Because they are designed to be flexible, they can trap water. Using a flat extension or removing and dumping out any debris or water caught in corrugations is highly recommended.

Planter and flower pots can also lead to stagnant water, overflow, and pooling. Be sure to check and maintain on a regular basis.
