It has been a long cold winter, but the warmth of summer is finally here. Now that the temperatures are warming up and people are spending more time outside, it is time to get serious about controlling mosquitoes on your property.
Those sources of standing water may not have been a big deal in the winter when mosquitoes were dormant and hatching season was still months away. But as the temperatures get higher, those trash can lids and neglected birdbaths will start to harbor mosquito larvae. By cleaning up your yard now, you can improve your life, and your health, all summer long.
You Get to Enjoy Your Backyard Again
No one wants to be outside when the mosquitoes are biting, and their constant swirling and swarming is enough to send even the most intrepid visitors back indoors. By taking care of your backyard mosquito problem now, you can take back your outdoor living space and actually enjoy the summer season.
Whether you have a pool in your backyard or just a patio and a grill, you deserve to enjoy the fruits of your labor. When you send those mosquitoes packing, you can enjoy your entire home, including the backyard. You can even stay outside after dark when mosquitoes are most active.
Avoid the Health Risks Summer Can Bring
Mosquitoes are more than a summer nuisance – they are a real health hazard. In recent years, a number of mosquito-borne diseases have become serious health threats, causing birth defects, joint damage, and intense pain. If you want to minimize these summer health risks, you need to do your part to control mosquitoes in your own backyard.
From emerging threats like Zika to things like West Nile Virus, mosquitoes are vectors for many serious diseases. If you want to protect your home and family, take the time to clean up your backyard today.
Protect Your Pets
The humans in the family are not the only ones at risk from mosquito-borne illnesses. Your four-legged friends, including cats and dogs, are also at serious risk. And while some vaccines are now available, other emerging threats could still put your pets at risk.
If you want to protect your home, and your pets, from the worst summer has to offer, it is time to clear away the standing water. Removing potential breeding spots for mosquitoes is one of the best ways to protect your home, your family, and your pets.
