Mosquitos love to breed in water, they only need a bottle cap full to lay their eggs! Any stagnant water that stands for at least a week or so can become a good spot for mosquitoes to lay eggs. Mosquitoes have four stages: egg, larvae, pupae and adult, the first 3 out of 4 occur in water. That is why it is important to make sure to check for any areas where water sits and fix it accordingly. Examples of this include:

- Turning over any buckets, lids, wheelbarrows or other containers.

- If you have a pet who uses a water bowl make sure to dump and refill daily with fresh water

- Keep any protective tarps taught, water will build up on bunched or wrinkled surfaces.

- If you have kids that like to play outside, check to make sure all of their toys are turned over or put away

If you see any low spots, divots or ditches that have trouble draining water try adding soil, sod or a drainage system so that the water will be able to move.

Remove any built up debris (like branches, thatch and leaves) to reduce potential egg laying areas

Do not keep your fire wood laying directly on the ground. Use a firewood rack so that you increase air flow to the wood piles.

Make sure to check your gutters, just because you see water flowing does not mean there are not low points or built up debris that are retaining small amounts.

Replace the water on bird baths at least once a week

Keep your lawn and plants maintained:

  • - When mosquitoes are not sipping on your blood they enjoy taking down some plant nectar which means they spend a lot of time in around bushes, shrubs and tall grass
  • Another reason to keep your landscape trimmed is because when mosquitoes need some down time that like to go to places that are cool and damp. If you have vegetation that is overgrown and heavy, it will create a nice spot for mosquitos to relax. This is why the only rest on the underside of leaves.
