Keeping mosquitoes out of your yard can help you to enjoy a pest-free outdoor environment. Mosquitoes are annoying insects that bite into the flesh of humans and animals, and they feed on blood. They can leave red marks that itch, and they may even carry diseases. Young people and the very old can suffer from these diseases. Anyone who has a depressed immune system may also feel the effects of a mosquito bite to a greater degree than healthy adults. In many situations, you can prevent a mosquito infestation.
There are several specific things that you can do in order to prevent these pests from bothering you while you are outside. It is important to consider the impact of your yard on the people who will be using it for recreational purposes. Taking these precautions can help you maintain the health and safety of family members, pets and visitors. You can always contact one of our service representatives for more details about the best methods to use to keep your yard completely free of mosquito infestations.
What Attracts Mosquitoes?
The first thing to do is remove any pots or other containers that might be holding standing water. This could include draining the water from your inflatable swimming pool, but it could also require you to securely cover any outdoor swimming pools for adults as well. Mosquitoes are attracted to stationary water, and they can easily grow in numbers if left alone. Flower pots filled with water can draw them into your yard, so make sure all open containers are empty after every rain storm. Finally, make sure that you don’t allow water to accumulate at the stumps of any trees in your yard. This is a common area for mosquitoes to use as a breeding area, and many people overlook the standing water around the tree stumps after it rains.
