Protect Your Yard and Your Family From Mosquitos
Stop letting mosquitos ruin your outdoor gatherings this summer! Just because Alabama is known for our mosquito population does not mean we should be forced indoors this summer. How do you keep those pesky mosquitos out of your yard? Here are a few tips.
Removing Stagnant Water
The first step in proper mosquito control in Alabama is to get rid of everything that attracts mosquitos to your yard. The number one attraction for mosquitos? Standing water! Take a walk around your backyard and take notice of any water. From bird baths to baby pools, plastic toys, old tires, and more. Make sure to tip anything on its side that could be collecting water.
Keep Pools Clear of Algae
Another problem is algae that grow in pools. While adult female mosquitos feed on human and animal blood, mosquito larvae will eat algae. Skim the surface and use the proper treatment methods to keep the water clear. Make sure to keep your pool clear of all algae by regularly cleaning and also properly treating it with chemicals.
Adding a Mosquito Control System
A mosquito misting system is an effective way of treating your yard without harming your kids, pets or beneficial insects.
A professionally installed mosquito misting system uses a spray that covers the yard with a chrysanthemum-based solution. It does this on a set schedule or you can manually control it based on the times you plan on using your yard.
It’s an EPA approved system that deters mosquitos from coming to your backyard and kills the ones that are already there. Other annoying pests, like ticks and flies, are also impacted by the misting solution.
Once your mosquito problem is under control in Alabama, you can use your yard at any time of day. You won’t have to run around with citronella candles or cover yourself in bug spray simply to step outside. It’s time to enjoy outdoor living again.
