Summer is in full swing and it’s been HOT and wet here in Middle Tennessee. The current weather we’re experiencing mixed with the mild winter we had has made the perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes. Mosquitoes are resilient pests that can ruin your outdoor experience quick and carry harmful viruses like the West Nile and Zika as well as other diseases. Mosquitoes are not only pests and their bites annoying, but because of these diseases they can be very harmful to your family and your pets.
They typical Middle Tennessee backyard has a variety of pests present, from mosquitoes to ticks, fleas, spiders and other six-legged creatures. We want to help give you and your family a defense against these pests taking residence in your outdoor spaces and potentially causing any illness in your home.
First of all, one of the best things you can do to suppress mosquitoes in your lawn is to prevent them from breeding in your yard. By eliminating breeding grounds, you can actually force mosquitoes to go somewhere else. Ways to know if you have a potential breeding space for mosquitoes — look for places in your yard that collect stagnant water and do you best to eliminate them or clean them often. Things like birdbaths, decorative ponds, planters, pots, lawn ornaments and trash receptacles can hold water and attract mosquitoes to your home. You should make it a habit to regularly empty these areas of standing water. Another issue is a low point in your yard that collects rainwater and run off, you may want to fill that in or dig a ditch to help eliminate the standing water in your yard.
