...But you don't have to welcome them to your home.
Mosquitoes are seasonal insects, typically in their prime from June to September. They are natural survivors and stay away from anything that will put their life in jeopardy. They avoid wind, go out in the evening to feed on less active prey and know the best times to mate.
With extra rain in the past months, mosquitoes have been in overdrive. We want you to keep a leg up on these pest because, quite frankly, mosquitoes suck:
If you have an outdoor fountain, keep it flowing as much as possible. The standing water is the perfect place for mosquitoes to lay eggs.
Keep your gutters cleaned. Water could pool in pockets and mosquitoes could breed right over your head without you knowing.
Have a tire swing in the back yard for the young ones and the kids-at-heart? Drill a hole in the bottom of the tire so any water will drain out.
Several animals, such as frog, tadpoles, drangonflies, fish and birds, are natural predators to mosquitoes. Although they can help you get rid of some mosquitoes, none of them are effective enough to truly control the mosquito population. The only ways to truly help rid of mosquitoes is to eliminate the water sources they use to survive or an effective mosquito control program like our No-Squito service.
Mosquitoes suck, but you don't have to let them suck the fun out of your outdoor activities.
