You can proactively reduce the breeding grounds of these pests by actively surveying and maintaining your property. You just have to know what you're looking for. The EPA posted a blog on what you, the homeowner, can do to reduce mosquitoes and the threat of mosquito borne diseases this year as well.

It is important to identify any areas that would hold stagnant water such as bird baths, toys, containers, tarps, potted plant trays, old tires, wheelbarrows, etc. As mentioned before...mosquitoes can breed in as little as a cap of water.  

Also, making sure that your gutters are not obstructed and storm drains are not clogged.  

It is essential to manage and eliminate the mosquito breeding sources in order to reduce the pest populations.  

Mosquitoes need water to thrive. They lay their eggs in it and spend the first part of their lives there until their wings are developed. Rain produces puddles which will provide more places for mosquitoes to lay eggs. In addition to locating objects around the property, it is equally important to survey the property for any low lying areas which would allow water to pool. Trying to fill in these areas or developing a better drainage may be reasonable.  

This active involvement on your property will help reduce the mosquito populations. However, the most effective defense is with consistent mosquito barrier treatments. Mosquito Squad can help reduce and eliminate the mosquitoes on your property while also protecting against the mosquitoes that come over from your neighbors as well.
