Disrupting Pesky Mosquitoes Start With Limiting Desirable Environments and Conditions


Mosquitoes can quickly turn your yard into a place you don’t want to spend time in during summer. However, you can prevent them from becoming a problem in the first place. Take these steps to prevent mosquitoes and have a Point Pleasant NJ exterminator treat your yard for added protection.

Get Rid of Standing Water

Mosquitoes lay eggs in standing water, which can lead to bigger mosquito populations in your yard. Getting rid of these areas means they won’t have a place to lay their eggs. Eliminate standing water or empty water and change it frequently in every part of your yard, such as in bird baths, potted plant trays and fountains. Empty pet water bowls later in the day rather than leaving them filled with water overnight. If you have an above ground or in ground pool, keep the water treated. If you have an inflatable pool, empty it out each time you use it.

Use Mosquito Repellants

Some devices can help prevent mosquitoes from coming around, such as fans and citronella candles. However, these might not work as effectively on an ongoing basis. Wearing mosquito repellant when you’re outside can prevent these pests from bothering you.

Schedule Pest Control Services

Pest control professionals can treat your yard to stop mosquitoes from staying around. This can keep you and your family safe from mosquito bites all summer long.
