Common Breeding Grounds For Mosquitoes

April

Is your property a breeding ground for mosquitoes? Obviously, this isn’t something you would plan for or even allow to go on if you knew it was happening but believe it or not, if you have ANY standing water on your property, mosquitoes are probably breeding there. Allowing mosquitoes to breed on your property is a very bad idea. Not only can mosquitoes make time spent outdoors miserable, but they are known for spreading serious diseases, including Zika, West Nile virus, Malaria, Yellow fever, Dengue fever and several types of Encephalitis.

Mosquitoes are obnoxious little biters. They crash our picnics and our BBQs and pretty much any other outdoor activity we enjoy in the summer. During hot summer days, we don’t typically notice mosquitoes until dawn and dusk. This is the time that mosquitoes come out in droves, looking for a little snack. Female mosquitoes are the only ones that bite- they need our blood to help nourish their eggs. When they bite us, not only do they cause itchy red spots (that can be worse for some than others!), but they can also spread serious diseases.
