Tips for Management


Eliminating and removing possible breeding habitats for mosquitoes can greatly reduce populations. Mosquitoes breed in standing stagnant water. Eliminating as many of these sites as possible will reduce the incidence of mosquitoes in the vicinity. Poorly drained areas such as low spots, depressions, tire ruts or other areas that collect water need to be remedied and minimized. Items that collect water such as bird baths, old tires, rain barrels/buckets, and clogged gutters need to be monitored and emptied after rain. Catch basins and other areas collecting water should be monitored closely to ensure standing water does not persist.


1) Reduce the mosquito habitat around your home by regularly cleaning and emptying water holding containers such as gutters, boats, canoes, bird baths, pools, children's toys, eaves troughs, tarp covers and plant trays.


2) Ensure that rain barrels are covered with a fine screen and tightly sealed around the downspout. Since mosquitoes breed in standing water, this will help prevent more mosquitoes populating around your property.


3) Clean your yard of old tires, empty flower pots, buckets and any other debris where water collects.


4) Keep grass mowed and vegetation trimmed around high use areas such as doorways & seating areas.


5) Avoid leaving piles of grass, leaves or dead wood around the yard. These are great places for mosquitoes to breed in as well as hide.


6) Treat your property with a barrier spray from to reduce up to 90% of the mosquitoes from your property.
