Mosquitoes in Your Backyard

Mosquitoes can carry many different diseases including Dengue fever, West Nile virus, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, Malaria and now the Zika virus, which makes it even more important to eliminate breeding areas around your home and property. Mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water; the better you are at eliminating these areas the smaller mosquito population you’ll have on your property. Common areas to look for mosquitoes are bird baths, empty pots, clogged gutters, tires, and buckets. If you plan on spending time outside this spring and summer, consider using spray repellents with DEET and wear long sleeve shirts and pants. Mosquitoes are attracted to carbon dioxide (when we exhale), bright colors, movement, and certain perfumes. The female mosquito is the only one that feeds on humans but both the female and male feed on nectar.
