Working Together with Mosquito Sheriff to Prevent Mosquitos at Your Home.

Listening to the sound of the rain can be therapeutic for most. There are some people that can stay in bed all day enjoying the drops hitting the window cuddled up reading a good book. The rain is great for a day of rest and the earth. The plants, trees, and bodies of water all need the rain to continue to flourish. Did you know that mosquitos also need the rain to survive? Rainwater is collected in outdoor objects around your home, buildings, on lily pads in a pond, and can even collect in divots made in your yard. Mosquitos immediately breed in the puddles made by the rainwater and their cycle takes just days. Studies have found that female mosquitos prefer to lay eggs in water that collects, and the eggs can survive when they dry out and last up to eight months. When the rainwater collects and covers the eggs they hatch and become adults in less than a week. This is why it is so important to remove standing water from your property. There are many ways you can work together with Mosquito Sheriff to prevent mosquitos at your home.

Mosquito Sheriff works hard to keep mosquitos from your home, but you can never completely remove mosquitos because they are always breeding new life. You can greatly reduce your risk of this pesky insect and the diseases they carry by having our monthly service, but there are also many things you can do as a homeowner to help.

The first thing to do is to stay on top of the weather. Mosquitos need water to breed and survive. After a rain take a quick walk around your property. Look for objects or areas that are pooling water. These areas need to be flipped over or dumped out. Some areas might also need to be filled in. An area that may need to be filled in would be a divot in the yard made by a lawn mower. This is a prime location for a mosquito and one a homeowner might overlook. Other areas to consider include:

Mosquito Breeding Areas:

  • Flowerpots
  • Gutters
  • Tires
  • Playsets/ Kids Toys
  • Dog Bowls
  • Furniture
  • Trash Cans
  • Grill Covers
  • Buckets
  • Yard Debris

Mosquitos tend to love yard debris. If you have debris laying around your yard, do yourself a favor and remove them. Your yard will look better, and your mosquito problems will greatly reduce. Mosquitos often take refuge in debris that are laying around your yard such as lawn clippings, piles of branches, or raked leaves. These become a perfect shelter for mosquitos to hide from the wind. Another place mosquitos will take refuge is tall grass. Keeping your yard manicured will be a key component to working together with Mosquito Sheriff to prevent mosquitos from your home.

The knockdown method will radically remove any mosquito it encounters immediately. The barrier method creates a barrier of protection on your yard until the next spray.

– I was looking for a Non-Toxic/Natural way to handle the mosquitos and ticks problem as my children and pets are always in the garden, so my friend recommended me to this company, they shared a lot of information and insight and the process was easy to follow.
