Minton Outdoor Utilizes a Variety of Methods to Keep Your Yard Free of Mosquitoes

We get it, you want to enjoy spending time in your yard doing all the things you love to do: gardening, enjoying sunsets, watching the kids play, exercising or just chilling on your patio. And unwanted pests make it hard or impossible to do.

Mosquito control has been something that mankind has been trying to perfect as long as humans (and mosquitoes) have existed. It’s amazing how a tiny little insect (or a whole swarm of them!) can ruin a bar-b-que or any other outdoor activity.

Mosquitoes not only make it difficult to enjoy the outdoors, they’re dangerous. Mosquitoes spread diseases like Zika virus, West Nile virus, Chikungunya virus, dengue, and malaria. They’re just nasty.

Prevent Mosquitoes in Your Yard

They always say an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. This is a great way to begin when you’re trying to eliminate mosquito infestations and reduce the mosquito population in your yard.

Eliminate Standing Water to Eliminate Mosquito Larvae

Mosquitoes need water to survive and reproduce. Standing water is a breeding ground for mosquitoes. Standing water attracts mosquitoes to reproduce and lay eggs. Emptying out and eliminating water collectors such as old tires, bird baths and empty pots takes away the places where mosquito eggs turn into larvae and mature into adult mosquitoes.

It’s true. Tall grass can be very inviting to mosquitoes and other insects. It just so happens that this is one solution that is within our wheelhouse. If you’re looking for the most reputable lawn care service Belleville IL has to offer, look no further.
