Mosquitoes can be annoying pests and, in some cases, they can be dangerous, as the insects can carry diseases. While the deadliest of these diseases don’t often reach Florida, it’s still important to keep mosquitoes from settling or breeding near your home. There are plenty of ways to prevent mosquitoes from making your home their own:
- Sprinkler magic: One way to deal with a mosquito infestation is to use a sprinkler. Using Mosquito Magician is an important part of mosquito control in Southwest Ranches, FL. Using an irrigation-powered mosquito repellent system in Southwest Ranches, FL means your entire property will be covered, and it will last through any weather. It’s an automated system that’s safe for pets and children. It’s also a cost-effective way of dealing with mosquitoes, since it takes advantage of a system that’s already in place.
- Drain standing water: Mosquitos breed in water, especially any standing or stagnant water. You’ll want to turn over any standing water in your yard. This includes items like dog bowls and birdbaths. If they’re necessary, you should fill them with fresh water on a regular basis and make sure to get rid of any leftover water. If you have standing water on your property that can’t be drained, like fish ponds or ditches, there are mosquito dunks that kill mosquito larvae. This should be combined with Mosquito Magician to cover your entire yard with a complete mosquito repellent system in Southwest Ranches FL.
- Eliminate trash: Getting rid of trash can also help curb or eliminate the mosquito population in your yard. You may not realize it, but some trash or items around the house are perfect for retaining water and mosquitoes. A prime example is old tires, which can accumulate significant water over time. Keeping your gutters clear and flowing is another important aspect of effective mosquito control in Southwest Ranches, FL. A clogged gutter means standing water and the perfect home for the pests. The better maintained the yard is, the less areas there will be for mosquitoes to use for breeding.
- Secure tarps: Tarps are another great example of places where rainwater can gather and turn into standing water. If not tied up correctly, the water will start to collect and/or pool in some places, which will result in the perfect habitat for mosquitoes. If you use tarps to cover firewood, a grill or any other large items, make sure they’re pulled tight. Keep an eye on them, being on the lookout for any pooling water.
