When the warmer weather arrives here in Ohio, you want to be able to enjoy your outdoor space in peace. However, this can go awry when mosquitoes find their way onto your property. The good news is that there are some things that you can do to help take back your outdoor space from these pests! The first thing you should do is remove any debris from your yard, as they will use it as shelter during windy or sunny days. You also need to clean out and unclog your gutters because they can fill up with debris and standing water, which mosquitoes use to breed. Additionally, removing standing water will reduce places where they can procreate. However, to truly get rid of mosquitoes, sign up for a professional mosquito control service. Pros have everything needed to combat mosquitoes effectively, and you don't have to worry about missing a treatment and losing coverage.

Remove Debris from Your Property to Keep From Attracting Mosquitoes

If you notice any debris like leaves, sticks, or twigs around your property, make sure you rake them up and dispose of them right away. These pieces of debris can provide shade and block the wind, which makes them ideal places for mosquitoes to hide and stay sheltered from the elements. By removing debris from your yard, you won't give these pests a place to seek refuge on your property!

Clean out your gutters to avoid creating ideal conditions for mosquitoes!

Your gutters play a crucial role in diverting water away from your property. But if they aren't properly cleaned and are clogged, they will quickly fill up with debris and become a prime breeding ground for mosquitoes. Clogged gutters create areas where rainwater can pool and sit undisturbed, giving mosquitoes another spot to gather. It's important to regularly clean out your gutters to avoid this problem!

Get Rid of Standing Water That Mosquitoes Can Use to Breed

Standing water provides the perfect environment for mosquitoes to multiply. Anytime you see standing water on your property, it needs to be removed or regularly refreshed. Mosquitoes need 1/4-inch of water to lay their eggs, and even small amounts of stagnant water can attract them. So, if you have bird baths, kiddie pools, buckets, trashcan lids, or anything else that collects water, make sure you either dump out the water every few days or add something to the top to prevent mosquitoes from laying their eggs in it. If you have a larger body of water on your property, such as a pond, you can use a bubbler so that the movement of the water prevents mosquitoes from using it to breed.
