How to Get Rid of Mosquitos

How to Get Rid of Mosquitos

Experts say we’re in for a bad mosquito season. To prevent nasty bites and the West Nile virus, remove standing water from these unlikely places, and eliminate mosquito breeding grounds.

Mosquitoes breed in standing water, so get rid of any wet breeding grounds in your yard.

Mosquitoes spreading the West Nile virus are showing up across the country months before their usual summer schedule. So, it’s more important than ever to dry up wet breeding grounds in your yard.

Wading pools and birdbaths are obvious places for mama mosquitoes to lay their eggs. Change water weekly and add water wigglers like a sun-powered water fountain pump to prevent water from stagnating.

But mosquitoes can breed in tiny amounts of water, as small as a capful, making it tricky to spot and eliminate all birthing places.

Here are some places to look.

  • Empty ceramic pots and saucers
  • Discarded water bottle tops
  • Old tires
  • Wheelbarrows
