What is the most effective mosquito control
There is no pest worse than mosquitoes. Not only do they spread diseases from itchy bites, but this is exactly the type of insect you want to keep away from your home.
Mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water. The larvae stay here, feeding on plankton until they become adults. For this reason, water is your enemy in backyard mosquito control.
- Remove any standing water as it becomes the perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes
- Clean drains and gutters as mosquitoes can lay their eggs in this stagnant water.
- Maintain yard and pool to ensure that you are free from any mosquito habitats.
Moreover, you can do the following to control mosquitoes:
- Keep doors closed
- Make use of fans or air conditioning
- Avoid excess water usage
- Keep ponds clear of debris and maintained
- Burn wood in your outdoor fire pits as smoke repels mosquitoes
- Avoid using perfumed shampoo or soap
- Maintain proper chlorine levels in your pool
- Change the water out of your pet bowls daily.
How do I control mosquitoes in my yard?
Get rid of Standing Water
Since mosquitoes in Texas breed in damp environments, rid your yard of any standing water. Turn over open containers or drill holes to promote drainage. Regularly change the water in birdbaths and install a rainwater drainage system.
Maintain Your Yard
Mosquitoes find shelter in grass, weeds, and leaves. Ensure that you clean out your gutters, mow your lawn and remove piles of leaves so you eliminate any places where mosquitoes can hide.
In addition to moisture, mosquitoes also like shade. Keeping your trees and bushes cut back limits the areas they can use for habitats.
