Are you ready for mosquito season? If not, now is the time to start getting ready. When the temperatures warm up, mosquitoes are going to be hatching in your yard. We don't have to tell you what that means. Here are some important tips for your property that will help you get those mosquitoes under control.
Remove Breeding Sites
Mosquito Control in Essex County begins with a control of breeding sites. If mosquitoes can't find a location in your yard that's suitable for breeding, what are they going to do? That's right. Move on to the next. Do an inspection of your property and look for any object that holds rainwater. If it is a toy, stow the toy away. If it is a tarp, tent the tarp so water runs onto the ground. Mosquitoes can breed in a half cup of still water. Any conditions that allow water to pool in your yard need to be addressed before mosquitoes hatch and begin to breed. Repair any broken gutters and make sure your gutters don't have leaves that are creating a clog. Repair leaky spigots and damaged hoses. Trim trees and bushes that make it difficult for rainwater to be dried up by the sun. Every little bit counts.
Eliminate Mosquitoes In Your Yard
Before mosquitoes come to life, reach out to a professional pest control company for mosquito and tick reduction service. If you start service in time, it will destroy any mosquitoes that are currently waiting to hatch in your yard. It will also prepare your yard to be a death trap for new mosquitoes that come into it.
Why Mosquito Service Works
Most mosquitoes don't travel far during their lifespan. While they can fly at 1.5 miles an hour, they rarely fly more than 430 yards from the location they hatched. Killing the mosquitoes in your yard can make a noticeable difference because it takes time for new mosquitoes to replace the old mosquitoes.
