Spring is the best time of year (in our opinion). The flowers are blooming. The birds are singing. Winter is behind us. And summer fun is just around the corner. But you don't have to wait for summer to have fun. There are lots of things to do in your yard during the spring; things you can share with family and friends. Spring is the best. But mosquitoes can make it the worst.
Who doesn't love cooking hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill? But cooks can quickly become miserable when mosquitoes show up--which they often do because we usually have our cookouts after working all day and that is when mosquitoes are most active.
Who doesn't love playing a game of catch or volleyball? Backyard sports are fun. But mosquitoes can drive you crazy while you're trying to have fun. They're attracted to moisture, heat, and carbon dioxide. You'll be generating all three when you work up a sweat.
Who doesn't love to have beautiful flowers in the yard? If you have a green thumb, it is likely you'll be spending quite a bit of time working on your flower beds, flower pots, and hanging gardens. You may not know this but mosquitoes need a sugar meal more frequently than they need a blood meal, and one of the places they get a sugar meal is from flowers and plants. You can be sure that mosquitoes will take interest in you if you're decorating with either of these.
Spring is the beginning of mosquito season, but it doesn't have to be the beginning of itchy-welt-season, which is what mosquito season should be called. You can significantly reduce mosquito bites with one simple step: invest in mosquito reduction.
When you invest in seasonal mosquito reduction, you'll have routine visits from an educated pest control professional who will inspect your yard, identify and address mosquito breeding sites, and administer treatment that will make your yard uninhabitable for mosquitoes. This is a powerful process that works to build a buffer zone around your property. While it isn't guaranteed to make your yard mosquito-free, you are sure to see dramatic decreases in mosquito activity.
This service also works to control ticks, which can introduce dangerous diseases to you, your kids, and your pets.
