Dealing with mosquitoes in your Las Vegas yard can be bothersome. We are fielding numerous calls about mosquitos and mosquito bites from inside homes and yards. Here are some steps to help reduce mosquito activity:
1. Remove Standing Water: Mosquitoes breed in standing water, so empty any containers, gutters, or areas in your yard where water collects.
2. Maintain Your Lawn: Keep your grass trimmed and bushes and shrubs pruned, as mosquitoes like to rest in tall vegetation.
3. Use Mosquito Repellent: Apply mosquito repellent on your skin and clothing when spending time outside.
4. Install Screens: Use screens on windows and doors to keep mosquitoes out of your home and keep doors closed.
5. Citronella Candles: Citronella candles or torches can help deter mosquitoes from the area.
6. Mosquito Nets: Use mosquito nets or screens around outdoor seating areas.
7. Avoid Peak Times: Mosquitoes are most active at dawn and dusk, so try to limit your outdoor activities during these times.
8. Consider Bug Zappers or Traps: Electric bug zappers or mosquito traps can help reduce mosquito populations in your yard or call our office for other solutions.
9. Professional Treatment: If the mosquito problem persists, consider professional mosquito control services like Guaranteed Pest Solutions. A trained professional can often locate where they're coming from and offer solutions.
