Now that summer is in full swing, you may be dealing with more than just warmer temperatures. You may also have to battle against mosquito populations in your backyard or even inside your home. Not only are mosquitoes a nuisance, but they can also carry dangerous diseases like West Nile Virus and Zika Virus. So how can you control mosquito populations and keep your family safe?
Warm temperatures not only mean higher energy bills, but also more mosquitoes.
We all know that warm weather brings Mosquitoes. And, unfortunately, with them comes the potential for disease. So how can we protect ourselves and our families? Here are a few tips: 1. Use mosquito nets when sleeping or spending time outdoors in areas where there are large populations of mosquitoes. 2. Wear clothing that covers your skin when you are outdoors to minimize the amount of exposed skin for mosquitoes to bite. 3 . Apply mosquito repellent before going outdoors, and reapply according to the directions on the package (usually every few hours).
Mosquitoes can carry dangerous diseases like West Nile Virus and Zika Virus.
If you’re concerned about Mosquito-borne illnesses, there are steps you can take to help control the population. By removing standing water from your property, and using mosquito repellent when outdoors, you can make your yard less attractive to these pests. In addition, there are products available that will kill mosquitoes on contact. For more information on how to keep yourself safe from Mosquitoes, check out this blog post.
So how can you control mosquito populations and keep your family safe?
There are a few things you can do to control mosquito populations and keep your family safe. One is to make sure you don’t have standing water around your home. This can be done by emptying out any containers that may hold water, such as buckets, kiddie pools, or even potted plants. If there’s no standing water for them to lay their eggs in, the Mosquito population will decrease significantly. You can also use Mosquito traps or dunks in areas where there is standing water that you can’t remove. Finally, you can reach out to us!
