Mosquitoes might be impossible to fully eliminate, but with Lawn Pride’s proven mosquito treatment, you’ll be sure to enjoy your time outside a lot more.
Understanding is Half The Battle
Mosquitoes develop in standing water or stagnant water. Common breeding places for mosquito larvae are small pools of water, and ditches, particularly if the water contains organic waste. Mosquitoes may develop in anything that holds water for more than 10 days, even gutters or tree cavities. Mosquitoes will lay eggs on the water’s surface or in places where water is likely to accumulate. The eggs can hatch in just three days or may wait until conditions are favorable such as when flooding occurs. The larvae mature into adult mosquitoes in as little as 9 to 11 days. One female mosquito can lay 100 to 200 eggs. The entire life cycle may be completed in as few as 11 days. If left untreated, you could be left with a serious, not to mention annoying, problem.
Mosquito Control Tips
The following practices have been shown to reduce mosquito populations to help you get back to enjoying your lawn.
- Dispose of unused tin cans, old tires, tarps, boat covers, or any other artificial water containers.
- Inspect flower pots and plant containers for standing water frequently, making sure to loosen soil regularly to ensure that water penetrates through the soil instead of forming a stagnant puddle where mosquitoes might breed.
- Change the water in birdbaths weekly and be sure to drain small wading pools when they are not being used.
- Keep gutters clean and check downspouts for clogged.
- Fill in low lying swampy areas around your home that create stagnant pools or puddles.
- Place tight covers over any containers where water is stored.
