Mosquito Prevention Tips
If you are battling mosquitoes, you may want to take these steps to help reduce the number of mosquitoes in your yard.
- Take care of your lawn: When your lawn is cut short, and the shrubberies are trimmed, it gives your yard a chance to dry complete which reduces the number of mosquitoes.
- Change your lightbulbs: Mosquitoes are attracted to the frequency that certain light bulbs emit. LED lights and yellow bug lights do not attract bugs. This is an easy way to reduce the number of mosquitoes in your yard.
- Fix issues with standing water: Mosquitoes will breed in just a capful of water. Emptying water in containers around your yard will give the mosquitoes fewer places to breed. Be sure to store your gardening tools properly and to put away toys that can collect water. You may want to address draining issues.
- Wear mosquito repellent: Using mosquito repellent with DEET will help to stop mosquitoes and other insects from biting you.
