on Sunday, June 09, 2013 by Terminix
Nothing ruins outdoor fun faster than flying pests that bite. That’s why mosquito control products are in high demand during the summer months, when outdoor living spaces are popular for entertaining family and friends. You need the very best mosquito control to keep these unwanted pests from invading, but you’re equally concerned about the chemicals in mosquito control products. Fortunately, there are effective steps you can take to minimize mosquitoes, including the use of natural, eco-friendly solutions.
One of the best mosquito control tactics is prevention
Mosquitoes breed in stagnant water; therefore, it’s important to keep your yard free of places where they might breed. Empty kiddie pools, birdbaths, tire swings and other receptacles and keep gutters clear of debris, and you’ll help alleviate your mosquito problem. This is a great step toward natural mosquito control, but it will not completely eliminate the issue.
