Forward Thinking Pest Control
EHS wants you to be mosquito safe, and there is more to it than treatment. Mosquitoes can fly in excess of two miles in search of a blood meal. It's important that you keep these top ten tips in mind to minimize the threat from mosquitoes.
1. Get rid of mosquito-breeding containers. Anything that can hold water; tin cans, old tires, buckets, unused plastic swimming pools, can become a breeding ground for mosquitoes.
2. Prevent your swimming pool from becoming a breeding ground. If you aren't using your swimming pool, put a cover over it, making sure the cover doesn't sag and hold pools of rain water.
3. Keep grass mowed and trim trees & shrubs to minimize dark moist environments.
4. Take special precautions at dusk, a mosquito's favorite time to fly and bite. Cover exposed skin, and utilize an insect repellent containing DEET according to instructions and always avoiding direct application to the face.
5. Keep your rain gutters clear of leaves and debris. Avoid creating an ideal habitat for mosquito larvae.
6. A good onshore breeze or even a portable fan can keep mosquitoes at bay. Mosquitoes aren't strong fliers, and air currents moving past you will keep the mosquitoes moving too.
7. Take special precautions in high mosquito areas. Use head nets, long sleeves and long pants if you venture into areas with high mosquito populations, such as salt marshes & deep woods. Also utilize an insect repellent containing DEET according to instructions and always avoiding direct application to the face.
8. Be particularly careful when there is a mosquito-borne disease warning in effect. If so, limit outdoor activities or stay inside during dawn and dusk when mosquitoes are more active.
9. Make sure window and door screens are "bug tight." Check your screens periodically to make sure there are no holes and always replace worn-out screens.
10. Avoid standing water in your yard. Irrigate lawns and gardens carefully to prevent water from standing for several days.
