Where they live: they breed in standing water
About the Pest:
Mosquitoes are especially problematic because they spread the diseases like the West Nile Virus. They are particularly troublesome in the hot summer months. Mosquitoes breed in standing water. They don’t need much, and that makes them very hard to control.
How to Control:
When going outside at dusk or dawn, wear long sleeves and pants. Use an EPA-approved insect repellent on all exposed skin and clothing. Look around your property for standing water, and dispose of it. Mechanical control traps can be purchased and placed outside to help keep numbers down. Contact us for more details.
