It’s almost summer, and time to enjoy being outside or gardening. Unfortunately it is also mosquito season!
Mosquitoes can make gardening uncomfortable and turn porch sitting into a chore. But there are several steps you can take to safely reduce mosquito populations, have a more enjoyable summer, and protect yourself from diseases that mosquitoes help spread.
Remove Stagnant Water:
Uncirculated lake, pond, fountain, retention basin, birdbath, old tires, buckets, and similar areas.
Look for Moisture Conditions:
Tree wells and holes, flowerbeds, plant catch plates, rock holes, decorative pots and accent pieces, sprinkler heads, shady areas, etc.
Find Resting sites:
Vertical or inverted surfaces protected from the wind and providing higher levels of moisture, such as a patio area, the underside of the leaves for dense vegetation next to a structure, under a building’s eaves, gazebos, shade structures, porches, and decks.
