Mosquito Control for Your Yard


Mosquito Control for Your Yard

Summers in Northeast Ohio mean barbeques, backyard celebrations, and taking every opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. But nothing can get in the way of R & R quite like a yard full of mosquitoes. Not only are these pests a nuisance, but they can also carry harmful diseases that can be transmitted to your family and pets. Reduce the number of mosquitoes that make their way into your backyard this summer with these three easy mosquito control tips:

Three Mosquito Control Tips:

1. Remove standing water

Prevent mosquitoes from laying eggs around your yard by removing standing water. Be sure to check containers, pots, or toys that could be holding onto moisture after it rains – these pests breed in very small amounts of water.

2. Mow your grass regularly

Mosquitoes thrive in cool, dark spots, like tall grass, and piles of leaves and brush. Mowing your grass regularly eliminates ideal spaces for mosquitoes to live. Additionally, a well-maintained lawn will dry out faster after it rains, helping to reduce pools of standing water.

3. Use a mosquito control spray

To both prevent and eliminate mosquitoes, combine removing standing water and mowing your grass regularly with a mosquito control spray. There are many options for DIY yard sprays available, however, we recommend using a professional who can treat for mosquitoes at any stage of their life cycle, can monitor your property for its effectiveness, and will adjust as needed.
