Many things can be done in our backyards. Many of us love outdoor cooking, whether it’s in the spring, summer or fall. Many of us have a swimming pool that we can use for relaxing in the sun or splashing around. Many of us have a net set up and enjoy playing volleyball. You can also go 4-wheeling or hunting in your own backyard if you live in the country. Gathering with family and friends for outdoor parties is one of the most important activities we do in our backyards. A mosquito swarm can ruin these important activities. And when this happens, you’ll need the help of a professional mosquito service.
Itchy and red welts can be caused by mosquitoes. They are also a growing threat to other diseases. This could make your guests uncomfortable. It is a smart idea to reduce mosquito populations if you are planning an important event like a family reunion, wedding, graduation or Memorial Day festivities. Aside from hiring a trusted mosquito service in Myrtle Beach, here are some helpful tips.
Mosquito Service: How To Get Rid of Mosquitoes
- ADDRESS SITES OF BREEDING.
In their 2-month-long lifespan, most mosquitoes can only travel a few hundred yards. You can reduce the number of pests in your yard by eliminating breeding areas.
Check the containers in your yard. Many objects can hold water. All it takes to make mosquitoes reproduce is one inch of water. Toys, an old tire, bird feeder or a wheelbarrow are all examples of containers.
Inspect your gutters
Your gutters can become a breeding ground for mosquitoes if they are blocked. Although it may seem difficult to reach the gutters in your home’s roof, a healthy and clear system will not only help you keep your home safe from water damage but also prevent mosquito breeding.
Leakage in your plumbing should be checked. Water leaking from an exterior spigot/hose can not only cause water bills to go up, but can also promote mosquito reproduction.
- REDUCE MOISTURE FROM YOUR YARD.
Your yard can be at risk from mosquito activity due to high humidity like we experience here in Myrtle Beach. Mosquitoes require a lot of moisture. Mosquitoes will choose a moist yard over a dry one when they are looking for hiding places. It is a good idea to trim the branches of trees that receive a lot of shade to let the sunshine through and dry your landscaping.
Pruning your landscape can encourage good airflow and create a dry environment.
