Mosquitoes. What you don’t know could hurt you.

More than just an annoyance, the mosquito is the deadliest animal on the planet. Over one million people are killed by mosquito-borne diseases each year globally. In the US, we tend to be less aware of the deadly role mosquitoes play, but over 1,000 Americans each year experience serious illness or death as a result of a mosquito bite.

Mosquito Protection for Your Home and Family

Mosquitoes are both dangerous and annoying. Here are some home remedy actions you can take at home.

The Ts of Mosquito Control

Tip

Reduce standing water to eliminate mosquito threats, including those in children’s sandboxes, wagons or plastic toys; underneath and around downspouts, in plant saucers and dog bowls. Other hot spots include tarps, gutters, and flat roofs.

Toss

Remove excess grass, leaves, firewood and clippings from yards.

Turn

Turn over larger yard items that could hold water like children’s portable sandboxes or plastic toys.

Remove Tarps

If tarps stretched over firewood piles, boats or sports equipment aren’t taut, they’re holding water.

Take Care

Take care of home maintenance needs that can contribute to standing water, including cleaning out gutters and making sure downspouts are attached properly, keeping your lawn grass low, and check irrigation systems for leaking.

Team Up

Despite taking all precautions in your own home, talking with neighbors is a key component to mosquito, and tick, control. Townhomes and homes with little space between lots mean that mosquitoes can breed at a neighbor’s home, and affect your property.

Treat

Utilize a mosquito elimination barrier treatment around the home and yard. Using a barrier treatment at home reduces the need for using DEET-containing bug spray on the body. Mosquito Squad’s eliminates up to 90% of the mosquitoes and ticks on a property.
