Mosquito Prevention Tips
Female mosquitoes need standing water to lay their eggs, so the best thing to do in order to reduce the number of mosquitoes in your backyard this summer is to reduce their breeding grounds. This includes any standing, stagnant water. Hundreds of eggs can be laid in the smallest amount of water so homeowners must:
Get rid of any item lying around your yard that can hold water, for example old tires, beach pails, flower pot drip trays, tin cans or buckets
Cover swimming pools and hot tubs
Change the water frequently in bird baths, children’s pools and pet dishes
Clean debris from gutters
Repair leaky outdoor faucets
When not in use, don’t forget to turn over canoes, kayaks, wheel barrows, wading pools
