Did you know that mosquitoes have the nickname “swamp angels?” It’s ironic because they’re anything but angelic. Their bites cause itchy allergic reactions, they transmit deadly diseases to humans, and just their buzz alone is enough to drive someone crazy. If you want to avoid the wrath of the “swamp angel,” use the tips below.
Have you ever gone canoeing and noticed a swarm of mosquitoes on the surface of the lake having what looks like a mosquito party? This is because they need water to hatch their eggs. They spend the first 10 days of their lives in water. Now, picture the same swarm of mosquitoes in your backyard. It can happen if you leave out a bucket, birdbath, or any other container that can collect water. You can either make sure these items are covered or replace the water regularly to avoid attracting mosquitoes.
Mosquitoes use tall grass and overgrown shrubs as a shelter. In addition to water, they like cool and humid areas. Keeping grass cut and shrubs trimmed will help keep them away from your lawn.
Leaky pipes and a poor irrigation system can create favorable conditions for mosquitoes. Again, they love water in any way, shape, or form.
Make sure that your windows and doors have screens to prevent mosquitoes from going inside your home and that the mesh is the correct size. The holes in the mesh can’t be too big otherwise, the mosquitoes will fly right through the screen. There shouldn’t be any rips or tears in the screens, because they can find a way through them.
There are a variety of mosquito repellants you can use. Products containing DEET are known to be effective. Many use repellant spray, citronella candles, and plant oils.
