Summer here in Northwest Florida is hot and muggy. The high humidity makes our area a perfect breeding ground for Mosquitoes and other nuisance insects. One question we get a lot from customers is what they can do to help minimize the amount of mosquitoes around their home. We have a few tips to help with mosquitoes around your home so you can enjoy the outdoors again!
🦟Remove any standing water around your home. Standing water could be birdbaths, upside down Frisbees, and buckets full of rain water. Another source of water to watch out for is a swimming pool. If you have a swimming pool, check that you are keeping it treated and the pump is circulating the water properly.
🦟To help keep mosquitoes out of your home, keep all door and window screens in good repair. You may also want to check for any cracks or holes around your house that they get into.
🦟In order to minimize bites, wear long sleeves and pants. Limiting the amount of exposed skin will give you a better chance at not getting those annoying, itchy bites.
🦟Of course, the best way to keep mosquitoes away is using a mosquito repellent. Do your research and choose the best repellent for you and your family.
Following these tips will help diminish the mosquitoes you deal with this summer. If you want even more protection, you can have a pest control company come and treat for mosquitoes.
