Mosquitos are one of the best known downsides of summer. They buzz around at barbecues and sporting events, biting through clothing and giving everyone itchy red bumps. When relaxing at home with family or friends, it's nice to know that you don't have to put up with these pests. While you may not completely eliminate them, their presence can be greatly minimized with effective mosquito control.First, walk around your property after a rain shower passes or even on a sunny day and see where there's standing water. Any puddle, pond, clogged drainage, or other unmoving water is a breeding ground for mosquitos. One of the simplest thing homeowners can do is to do this examination of their property, which includes taking a look at potted plants and gardens, drain systems, pools, ponds, children's toys, tire swings, play sets, and more.
Granular repellent can be purchased in natural forms, which isn't harmful to children or animals. It's spread around lawns, home perimeters, and patios. Another method is fogging. There are indoor and outdoor versions. This method is thought to be particularly useful for quickly eliminating bugs in peak seasons. Sprays are useful for more targeted elimination. If you notice a certain area attracts more mosquitos than others, you may consider spraying this area down. The last method is a misting system. These come in portable and stationary varieties. These usually mist a few times per day for about 30-45 seconds. Whether you choose to take mosquito control into your own hands or enlist the help of an experienced professional, get to know the different ways you can get these pests under control and enjoy the summer.
