Now that the weather is getting warmer outside, mosquitoes will be out in full force soon. Maybe you have already seen some in your yard. We had a rather mild winter so mosquitoes will be a problem when it gets warmer.
Right now is the best time to prepare your home and garden for the mosquito season. As you know, mosquitoes can pose a danger to your family’s health. Mosquitoes can spread the West Nile Virus, Dengue, Chikungunya and Yellow Fevers as well as the Zika Virus, which is especially dangerous to pregnant women. Mosquito control is the best option to stop transmission. Experts say the coronavirus is not transmitted by mosquitoes.
There are a few things you can do right now to keep the mosquito population low in your yard. Make sure to empty all containers that are holding water and eliminate all standing water you may have in your backyard. Those provide perfect breeding grounds for mosquitoes.
