Pest Control Company: Mosquito Control Residential and Commercial
There’s a lot of water out there. All of the recent rains bring pleasure with the flowers that bloom, and they bring pain by giving the mosquitoes hatching opportunities. Use your pest control techniques to help get rid of those harassing insects.
All that rain over the last couple of months sure caused a lot of flooding, didn’t it? As those rivers and streams retreat inside their banks they leave little pools of water everywhere.
And those puddles, even small lakes (just take a look at the farm fields), are perfect places for skeeters to lay their eggs. Those pests want to grow their families, and make sure their kind doesn’t become extinct. More information on the website of Jenkins Pest and Lawn San Antonio
Nothing wrong with species preservation is there? At least until those offspring start looking at you for their next meal.
Local news recently reported that mosquito numbers are higher this year than last. Seems those rascals are having a bunch of babies. And those babies (at least the females) are hungry for blood.
Your blood if they can get at it.
As long as you’re inside your home they probably won’t be much of a problem. If you keep screens over your doors and windows not many of them will invade. But who wants to spend those beautiful sunny days indoors?
Summer is the time for picnics at the park. It’s a time for baseball, and softball. It’s a time for backyard barbeques. Summer is not a time to hide inside from biting insects.
Pest control techniques for mosquitoes are slightly different from the techniques you use for treating other pests. You don’t really inspect for evidence of skeeters so much, but if they’re there you know it when they bite.
You have a few options for helping keep the numbers down so they don’t destroy your picnic, or cookout, fun. Some of these bugs can get to you, and your guests, no matter what you do. A few always manage to slip past your defenses.
Try these tactics and you’ll have fewer problems with biting mosquitoes.
Mosquitoes are weak flyers. The slightest breeze moves them off course. They can’t make any (or they make very little) forward progress against that breeze. When you have a backyard cookout try setting up some fans around the area, and point them outward from the activities.
The airflow of the fans will push many of the mosquitoes away.
Mosquitoes don’t like the odor of skin so soft. Mix a capful of that in a spray bottle of water, and spray it on you.
When the skeeters smell that they fly in the other direction.
Smoke makes a powerful deterrent against mosquitoes. Place some anti-mosquito smoke pots around your yard. The mosquitoes won’t come closer than a few yards away.
Try these pest control techniques for mosquitoes the next time you decide to spend time outside for a picnic or a cookout. You’ll suffer fewer bites from mosquitoes. Visit this website
