Mosquitos are a nuisance. Most people don’t properly prepare for mosquito season— leaving the pesky insects to feast on their flesh. In today’s post, we’ll help you avoid the onslaught of mosquito attacks that are approaching in the coming months.
1. Eliminate Breeding Places It takes about 7-10 days for mosquito eggs to hatch. Standing water is the mosquito’s main breeding place, so you should look to get rid of any standing water from your home. Things like rainfall and melted snow can create puddles of water. Look for leaks in the home and check for different nooks and crannies to find places where water can unknowingly accumulate. Be thorough; mosquitos don’t really need much water to lay eggs.
2. Keep Your Home and Yard Clean It’s also easy for water to accumulate if you don’t keep your home clean. Be sure to keep the sink, drains and gutters clear. In your yard, pick up abandoned debris, look for potential breeding spots. 3. Hire a Pro Mosquitos are persistent, and once they’re within the home, they can be very hard to get rid of.
