    Mosquitoes around your home

    Mosquito control is more than a monthly or bi-weekly application. Products used with the correct application are designed to repel mosquitoes to the maximum extent possible and allow you to enjoy your outdoor environment. Three key elements to a successful mosquito management program are to eliminate breeding sites, i.e. standing bodies of water, use lighting that is less attractive to mosquitoes, and reduce shaded areas as much as practical. These elements are important and essential for an effective treatment to deliver the knock out punch!

    Breeding sites:

    • Toys
    • Tire swings
    • Bird baths
    • Potted plant saucers
    • Gutters
    • Exterior stairwell drains
    • Fish ponds
    • Storm drains
    • Ruts in yard or along roadway

    Shaded areas:

    • Thin tree branches
    • Raise tree canopies off the ground
    • Avoid covering large items with plastic or tarps

    Lighting

    • Use yellow bug lights
    • Sodium vapor bulbs are less attractive than mercury vapor bulbs
    • Outdoor lighting should be located away from the house and shine toward it
    • Minimize the use of indoor lighting that overlooks outdoor activity areas
