Mosquitoes swarm to Memorial for all the same reasons that people do. The climate is fairly pleasant year-round. There are heavily wooded areas and lush parks. There’s water in all directions. You know that you live in a hotbed for mosquitoes when local weather forecasts predict their activity each day.
Everyone knows that mosquitoes can spoil a perfectly good backyard barbecue, but an infestation is a serious problem. Worldwide, mosquitoes kill more people than all other animals, including humans, combined.
Mosquito-transmitted diseases were once confined to remote pockets around the globe. Nowadays, serious health threats like the West Nile and Zika viruses have spread to the U.S. The only way to keep your family safe is to prevent mosquito bites before they happen.
Why Mosquitoes Are Tough to Beat
Mosquitoes are resilient, adaptable creatures that can survive in a variety of conditions. In some species, adults hibernate for up to eight months. Most larvae can survive freezing temperatures if they stay in the soil. In the spring, adults and larvae just pick up where they left off.
Mosquitoes breed in stagnant water. If you’re imagining a rain-filled wheelbarrow or birdbath, think smaller. Indeed, half a teaspoon of water is perfectly adequate for up to 200 eggs.
When you consider all the places on your property where rainfall or other water collects, it’s easy to see why the mosquito population is difficult to control. Flat roofs, gutters, abandoned toys, flower pots, tire swings, tree stumps, depressions in your lawn, neglected kiddie pools, pet dishes, large-leafed plants and even wrinkled tarps are all ideal breeding sites.
After your property is treated by an experienced professional, you can help maintain mosquito control by keeping your yard as dry as possible. Replace leaky hoses. Keep gutters free of debris so that they drain thoroughly. Store unused items in a dry place. Turn unused flowerpots over.
To prevent bites, make sure that all doors and windows are sealed tight. Keep window screens in good repair. When outside, wear clothing that covers as much skin surface as possible. Keep lighting to a minimum at night.
