Mosquito Prevention Tips for Schaumburg Homeowners and Businesses
Minimizing your yard’s mosquito populations essentially boils down to effectively managing both water and light sources. Here are some of the key steps you can take to prevent mosquito infestations and keep your yard protected:
Replace Water Sources Every Week
Mosquitoes breed in standing water, making bird baths, ponds, puddles, and other standing water sources potential breeding grounds. Changing out, dumping or draining the water in these outside standing locations prevents mosquito eggs from hatching and adding to your overall pest population. Also, if you have a pool, make sure the filter is circulating correctly—otherwise, that too could become a hotbed of mosquito activity.
Replace Outdoor Lighting with “Bug Bulbs”
Some types of light attract mosquitoes more than others, which is why it’s helpful to change out your standard outdoor light bulbs for yellow “bug bulbs.” These special bulbs emit light that isn’t as attractive to mosquitoes. This simple step will help keep mosquito populations down in areas close to your house.
Clean Your Gutters
Mosquitoes don’t need much standing water to establish breeding grounds, and blocked gutters are often home to a few inches of standing water. By cleaning out your gutters, you can prevent the blockages that lead to standing water sources and the mosquito infestations that come with them.
