Just because you’re not getting bitten by mosquitoes doesn’t mean you shouldn’t think about mosquito control. Mosquitoes are going to be back in the spring, and they are going to be biting again. Here are 4 things you can do right now to avoid mosquito bites later.
- Remove Containers
All of the containers in your backyard will turn into stagnant water resources for spring mosquitoes to breed in.
- Unclog Gutters
Your gutter system protects your home from fungi, mold, and pest infestations. When your gutters become clogged, various problems can arise. It only takes an inch of water for mosquitos to hatch and develop. Pools of water from rain or melted snow can allow for mosquitos to breed. It is a good idea to clear out your gutters after all of the fall leaves have settled.
- Trim Bushes
Mosquitos prefer highly humid environments in order to thrive. Pruning your brushes help prevent them from becoming moist and damp, allowing mosquitos to hide in them for protection against the sun.
- Invest in Mosquito Control
While mosquito control services are seasonal, setting up your service now means you won’t have to remember to set it up in the spring when mosquitos begin to hatch. All of this can make your yard a much nicer place to be during the warmer months of the year.
