How to get rid of Mosquitoes and take back your yard!

When you think about summer, most of us think of family cookouts, hitting the beach, and just enjoying the weather the season has to offer. But unfortunately, as we spend more time outside, we start to notice those uninvited guests we deal with every year. Of course, I’m talking about mosquitoes! Mosquitos suck, so learn how to get rid of mosquitos and take back your yard.

Understanding how Mosquitos reproduce

Mosquito season technically starts in the spring, but it ramps up in the summer just as we plan to do all the outdoor activities we couldn’t do during the long winter. Mosquitoes are known to lay their eggs near standing water. So this means unattended gutters, old tires, bird baths, even children’s toys to name a few. Now you may say “I don’t have any of these items in my yard” or “I’m on top of things, this wouldn’t happen to me”. Those things may be true, but mosquitoes have been around since the time of the dinosaurs, and there is a reason for that, they are incredibly efficient, opportunistic breeders.

For example, if you water your plants, you could create a more than suitable breeding ground. Mosquitoes only need about a cup of water to breed, so if that hose you used to water your plants retains just 8 ounces of water a mosquito has the capability to lay over 100 eggs. And if all the summer activities had you busy and you didn’t water your plants for a week or so, you could be looking at a substantial population in just 8-10 days. From there, anytime you are outside by the fire pit with your friends and family talking, laughing, and joking, mosquitoes are just waiting in the wings from underneath tree leaves, sensing the CO2 you are putting out, about to take another meal, FROM YOU!
