Mosquito Control For Your Yard

All animals, including mosquitoes, need three things to survive – food, water and shelter. If we eliminate one of the three, mosquitoes cannot survive.

Keep Mosquitoes Out of Your Home and Yard:

  • Repair window and door screens
  • Eliminate mosquito shelters in your yard
  • Mow grass and tall weeds
  • Cut back shrubs and vines
  • Remove old tires and junk

Mosquito Breeding Sites Include:

  • Toys
  • Swings
  • Buckets and containers
  • Wheelbarrows
  • Bird baths
  • Flower pots
  • Poorly draining gutters
  • Sagging tarps
  • Plastic pools
  • Tree holes
  • Cesspool or septic tank
  • Untreated and non-functioning swimming pools
  • Tires
  • Cisterns or rain barrels
  • Low ditches or parts of the yard
  • Stagnant ponds

Taking care of these issues in the fall could lead to less mosquitoes in the spring.
