The hum of a mosquito is a dreaded sound! For some, it means that they will soon feel the itching of a mosquito bite.
Mosquitoes are a type of biting fly, and the females bite people and animals in order to obtain a blood meal to get the protein required to create healthy eggs. Mosquitos are small, growing to about 1/4 of an inch long, and they are usually gray or brown. Some species will have metallic scales or white markings on their bodies or legs.
Female mosquitoes lay their eggs on top of standing water. Things like ornamental ponds, birdbaths, wading pools, clogged gutters, leaky outdoor faucets, trash can lids or tarps, and containers that collect water, all act as breeding sites and attract mosquitoes to properties.
In addition to professional services, the following tips will help to reduce mosquito numbers on your property.
Get rid of their access to breeding grounds (standing water) on your property.
Store containers that collect water upside down when not in use, keep gutters free of debris, and repair low-lying areas in yards and driveways.
Keep your lawn cut short and remove any overgrown vegetation from your property.
Avoid spending time outside at dawn and dusk when mosquitoes are most active and wear a mosquito repellent when outdoors.
Stop mosquitoes from finding their way into your home by repairing torn screens and keeping doors and windows closed as much as possible.
