Mosquito Prevention Tips for Chippewa Falls Homeowners and Businesses
Preventing your lawn’s mosquito populations from rising mostly comes down to controlling the water and light sources on your property. Here are a few of the steps you can take to keep mosquito numbers down in the long run:
Replace Water Sources Every Week
Mosquitoes breed in standing water, which is why it’s crucial to change out the water in any of your outdoor water sources every week. Changing out this water prevents mosquito eggs from hatching, keeping their numbers down throughout their entire active season. Also, if you have a pool, ensuring that the filter is circulating correctly. This will prevent it from becoming a very large breeding ground for invading mosquito populations.
Replace Outdoor Lighting with “Bug Bulbs”
Certain types of light attract mosquitoes more readily than others, which is why “bug bulbs” exist. These yellow-tinted bulbs are less attractive to mosquitoes than regular light bulbs, and replacing your existing lights with them can contribute to lower mosquito numbers over time.
Clean Your Gutters
If your gutters become blocked, they can hold enough standing water for mosquitoes to establish breeding grounds inside. Cleaning your gutters provides an extra layer of protection to keep mosquito populations low.
