By draining standing water wherever you’re able to, you can reduce the number of mosquito breeding grounds on your property and
Removing Objects That Can Collect Water
Along with addressing active sources of standing water, it’s also important to address the objects in your yard that can potentially hold standing water. Buckets, tires, lawn equipment, toys, and other items can easily collect water when it rains and become hotspots for mosquito activity. You can minimize mosquito activity by tidying up your yard and putting these objects in places where they can’t collect rainwater.

Mosquitoes typically hide on the undersides of leaves to take shelter from the sun. Because of this, areas with dense greenery can become a haven for these insects. Trimming back dense foliage and removing any underbrush or leaf litter in your yard can help keep these pests at bay.
