Now that it’s getting warmer outside, the summer months bring poolside sunbathing, outdoor barbecues, and mosquitoes. That’s right, those little nuisances are back for another round of pestering good folks who just want to enjoy some fun in the sun.
But these uninvited guests aren’t taking no for an answer. They’re coming and they’re planning on wreaking havoc on your skin with those ugly little blotches that you can’t scratch enough to relieve the itching that comes with them. Even worse are the potential health hazards that mosquitoes can bring about in the form of communicable diseases that these little buggers spread.
There is some good news, you don’t have to live with the scourge this time around. Practicing these sensible methods of mosquito control can keep you and your loved ones from having to contend with the annoyance and discomfort of these flying pests.
The first thing to do is check all exterior surroundings of your home and property for any stagnant water. These areas are primary breeding grounds for mosquitoes to reproduce and lay their eggs. Eliminating all instances of standing water in the vicinity is one of the most effective ways to keeping mosquitoes away from your yard.
The thing is, you may not even realize you have this standing water in or near your yard where you and your family relax and play. Check everywhere you can, including inside any outdoor flower pots, bowls, and other receptacles that are capable of collecting water.
Find these things and empty them immediately. Doing so will take away the mosquitoes’ ability to flourish and multiply.
Tidy Up Your Yard
You may have emptied out all of the flower pots and various other water-collecting receptacles that might exist, but have you looked around your yard at the other detritus that might be collecting rainwater from each storm that passes through.
Homes with a melange of various trash, old tires, and assorted miscellaneous are practically inviting mosquitoes to come and lay their eggs inside of these things because they too are capable of holding stagnant water. That accumulated moisture will be all too tempting for mosquitoes to target.
So get out there and start throwing out all of that stuff that’s just collecting dirt and dust and rusting with every subsequent rainstorm. In the process, you’ll end up beautifying your home and improving curb appeal by clearing away the scattered debris of items that you probably should have trashed months, if not years, ago.
Sometimes the job is too big to do all by yourself. You’ve removed stagnant water and cleared away old cans and tires and you’re still dealing with these pests. That’s when it’s time to call in Mosquito Removal Collierville TN and have them professionally exterminated from your yard.
This is important to do if the other options have been successful as you may be dealing with an exceptional case of infestation that must be cleared away for the safety of you and your home.
