Mosquitoes suck the fun out of the outdoors here in Michigan - literally. These annoying pests become active when the weather gets warmer in the summer, ruining the nights when you want to sit or spend time outside. You can reduce the chances of them invading your property by removing debris, ensuring your gutters aren't clogged, and dumping standing water. However, while these preventative measures are effective, hiring professionals is the best way to keep them off. Pros have the treatments, experience, and tools to drastically reduce the mosquito population and prevent them from becoming too comfortable on your property so you can enjoy your summer nights again!
Remove Debris From Your Property So Mosquitoes Can't Use It as Shelter
Leaves, sticks, twigs, and other debris offer the perfect shelter for mosquitoes, as it provides shade from the sun and blocks the wind and other elements. If there's debris built up on your property, there's an increased chance of these biting pests taking up residence, too. Because of this, you'll want to remove anything they could use as shelter; this can reduce the chances of mosquitoes stirring up trouble and hindering your enjoyment during summer nights.
Keep your gutters unclogged to avoid providing an ideal environment for mosquitoes to live.
Another way to keep mosquitoes off your property is to ensure your gutters aren't clogged. When they are, they can fill with debris, providing an ideal environment for them to live. Not only that, but they're full of standing water, which these pests will use to breed. By keeping your gutters unclogged, you can avoid attracting mosquitoes.
Remove Standing Water to Prevent Mosquitoes From Using It to Breed
Mosquitoes are notorious for swarming areas with standing water because they use it to breed. So, you'll want to remove or dump out the water in dog bowls, bird baths, and kiddie pools so they have one less place to breed, forcing them to move on somewhere else. If there's standing water on your property you can't remove, such as a pond, you can install a bubbler to keep it moving and prevent it from becoming stagnant.
