Eliminating Mosquitoes

The Best Way to go about eliminating mosquitoes is to control the environment around your home and in the yard. Mosquitoes need water to breed and if you eliminate that source, they simply must move on to exist. Here are some simple tips that many homeowners don’t notice in and around their yards:

Eliminating Mosquitoes
Empty out any standing water in the yard

1. Clean out eaves, and gutters.
2. Remove old tires or drill holes in those used for playground equipment to drain.
3. Turn over or remove plastic pots.
4. Pick up broken, unused, or discarded toys to help control mosquito breeding sites.
5. Check tarps on boats or other equipment that may collect water in pockets or indentations.
6. Pump out bilges on boats.

7. Replacing the water in birdbaths at least twice a week will help with eliminating mosquitoes.
8. Replace water in pet or other animal feeding dishes or troughs at least twice a week.
