CLEAR OUT:
Old tires – Drums – Buckets- Pots as all these can hold water and breed 1,000’s of Mosquitos.

DRAINAGE:
Keep ditches clear and free flowing so they can dry… soggy ditches can become a breeding ground..

TRASH CANS:
Keep them covered and drill drainage holes in the bottom so they can drain if they do get water in them.

KIDS TOYS:
Keep plastic wading pools empty when not in use. Kids toys can hold enough water to breed mosquitos.

BIRD BATHS:
Keep them clean and flush them out several times a week or choose a birdbath with a fountain because the sound of dripping water will attract birds that naturally eat mosquitoes.

WATERING:
Do not over water potted plants and leave them soggy mosquitos can breed in them.

GUTTERS:
Gutters are a major breeding ground for Mosquitos. Wet leaves and dips or low spots hold water and can produce incredible numbers of mosquitos. Clogged gutters are a perfect breeding ground for mosquitos.
