Mosquitoes are more than just a buzzing nuisance. They cause painful bites and can carry dangerous diseases, such as West Nile, with a single bite. Mosquito Squad of Wilmington has 5 Tips on eliminating mosquitoes and their diseases that can affect your family and pets. Remembering these 5 T’s will allow you to enjoy your yard all season long, mosquito free.
Mosquitoes can breed in the smallest amount of water – no more than a water bottle cap. Remember to tip over anything that can hold water; bird baths, flower pot saucers, downspouts and dog bowls. Also check your gutters to be sure they are not clogged with debris and standing water.
Piles of excess grass and leaves can easily collect pools of water from rain or your sprinkler systems. Make sure to remove any excess piles where mosquitoes can lay eggs.
Don’t forget to turn over larger items such as children’s sandboxes or larger plastic toys that can hold water.
If tarps stretched over firewood piles, grills, boats, etc. are not taught; they can hold water and create breeding places for mosquitoes.
