There are so many great things that come along with the summer season. One not-so-great aspect of summer is mosquito’s. These tiny insects love to live outside and can leave you dealing with red, itchy whelps all summer long. If you’re already dreading this, we’re here to give you a couple of tips on how to keep the mosquito’s to a minimum so you can fully enjoy your time outside.
First, it is important to note that mosquito’s thrive near areas of standing water. Whether you have low-lying areas in your yard or regularly run outdoor faucets, making sure that these areas are eliminated or emptied as much as possible will help lower the number of mosquito’s that will gather in your outdoor areas.
Also, be sure to keep all trash stored in bins with tightly closed lids that are stored outside. Your lawn is another place where mosquito’s love to gather, so keeping your grass trimmed short can help this problem. These simple steps can greatly decrease the number of mosquito’s that you will find in your backyard while you are trying to enjoy the summer.
Another step you can take to eliminate mosquito’s from your area is to hire a professional pest management company to come out and inspect your yard and apply a treatment to the problem spots in your outdoor living spaces. While mosquito’s cannot be totally eliminated from your summer, there are ways to limit the affect it was on you and your outdoor space.
