Spring is a beautiful time of the year but unfortunately as the temperatures rise mosquitoes breed and begin multiplying rapidly. Nothing can ruin outdoor enjoyment faster than being attacked by pesky mosquitoes. Even though mosquito repellent helps, it doesn’t keep them completely away.
Mosquitos aren’t just obnoxious flying insects, mosquito-borne illness is a significant public health concern yearly anymore. Even though a mosquitoes entire lifespan is short, a female can reproduce a few times before she dies having 500 or more offspring throughout her lifetime.
Female mosquitoes lay their clusters of eggs in water so any standing stagnant water source is a potential breeding ground. A mosquitoes life cycle goes from the egg, larval, pupal and then biting blood-sucking adults and this cycle doesn’t take very long.
Don’t let those pesky mosquitoes keep you from enjoying your backyard fun this year, there are things you can do to help keep them at bay. It’s next to impossible to keep your yard completely mosquito free but there are things you can do on your property to eliminate their breeding sites and ways to repel them.
