Warm weather means firing up the BBQ grill, sitting on the deck…and getting bitten by mosquitoes?!

You might think it’s inevitable, but there are in fact several measures you can take to significantly reduce the mosquito population around your home.

Simple mosquito prevention ideas that you can do yourself include:

  • Dump out any unnecessary sources of standing water as often as possible. The goal is to avoid having any standing bodies of water for more than five days. Open garbage cans, unused buckets, tire swings, tarps and bird baths are common culprits.
  • Fix or replace leaky spigots and faucets as they can create pools of standing water.
  • Unclog roof drains and gutters to avoid water build up.

You can also enlist the assistance of a trusted pest control professional to deploy mosquito reduction tactics. Attention Pest Solutions utilizes granular applications, residual applications, IGR dunks, and the In2Care mosquito trap.
