Mosquitoes

The Mosquito

Few animals on Earth evoke the antipathy that mosquitoes do. Their itchy, irritating bites and nearly ubiquitous presence can ruin a backyard barbecue or a hike in the woods. They have an uncanny ability to sense our murderous intentions, taking flight and disappearing milliseconds before a fatal swat. And in our bedrooms, the persistent, whiny hum of their buzzing wings can wake the soundest of sleepers.

Prevention

 Old tires, cans, pails, and other water-holding containers are ideal breeding sites.  Store them upside down or get rid of them.  Keep eavestroughs clean of leaves and debris. Keep grass cut short and shrubbery well-trimmed so adult mosquitoes will not hide there in the daytime.

Control

Getting rid of mosquitoes in the yard during warm seasons with a liquid insecticide applications every 21-28 days. will help keep mosquitoes to a minimum and will allow you to use your outdoor areas without constant mosquito bites. While it is unrealistic to expect 100% control of all mosquitoes, you can expect to reduce the mosquito population to a manageable level that will allow you and your family to enjoy your yard.
