Summer has almost arrived here in Missouri and there’s nothing quite like enjoying the warmer days on your deck , taking time in your garden or entertaining your friends and family with a backyard BBQ. Unfortunately mosquitoes also appreciate a nice summer day are likely crashers to any outdoor activity or get-together.
Not only are mosquitoes annoying and intrusive, they have a biting habit that’s irritating at best. They are also vectors of many human diseases including Encephalitis and the West Nile virus and may pose a serious risk to you and your family if exposed.
Complete relief from mosquito infestations is impossible; however, you can implement preventative measures that will help reduce their numbers inside your home and around your property. Proper screening on your windows and doors and sealing cracks will help prevent mosquitoes from gaining entry into your home. Outside you can discourage mosquito activity and breeding by removing any standing water on your property. This includes clogged gutters, children’s pools, stagnant drainage ditches, and bird baths. Even buckets and discarded tires that contain water draw these pesky insects.
