Eliminate Standing Water
Mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water. Keep an eye
out for small puddles of water from gutters, buckets, or
even bird baths. If you have some standing water that
can’t be helped, make sure to regularly change it out to
ensure that it remains pest-free. If you have a pool, make
sure to cover it every night.
Trim Your Lawn
Turns out that mowing your lawn does more than make
your neighbor envious. It prevents the spread of pests,
too. Cutting down your lawn will make your home seem
a little less appealing to insects. Without tall grass and
extra moisture, mosquitoes miss out on places to rest or
start their habitats.
