Summertime means swimming, picnics, and time outdoors – but it also means mosquitoes. Mosquitoes can ruin a good time by leaving itchy bites and making that annoying high-pitched whine in your ear. Thankfully, there are ways to control mosquitoes so you can enjoy the outdoors without having to worry about them.
If you’re dealing with a mosquito problem, here are a few things you can do to help control them:
Keep your yard clean and free of standing water
Insect repellent can also be effective, but make sure to choose one that is specifically designed to repel mosquitoes
Try using mosquito netting when you’re outside, and wear long sleeves and pants whenever possible.
Keep your gutters clean and free of debris
Trim any bushes or tall grass around your property
Eliminate standing water from flowerpots, birdbaths, or any other vessel around your home
Change the water in pet dishes and outdoor fountains regularly
Make sure window and door screens are in good repair so mosquitoes can’t enter your home
With these simple tips, you can drastically reduce the mosquito population near your home and enjoy a bite-free summer!
Mosquito control is important for many reasons. Mosquitoes can carry and transmit diseases, such as malaria, dengue fever, yellow fever, Zika virus, and West Nile virus. In addition to disease transmission, mosquitoes can also cause skin irritation and allergic reactions in some people.
