Now that we are midway through the summer, mosquito season is in full swing. Protecting yourself and your loved ones from pesky and potentially harmful mosquitoes requires you to take action on several fronts. Below, we break down how you can attain the ultimate mosquito protection this summer.
Tackle Mosquito Protection on the Home Front
Don’t let bugs burden you this summer or prevent you from enjoying fun outdoor events. There are many housekeeping tactics that you can implement to help safeguard your home and outdoor space from annoying biting insects. To achieve the ultimate mosquito protection at home, follow our tips below.
- Clean out gutters of all leaves and other debris. Clogged gutters collect water and act as a breeding ground for mosquitoes. Remove this attraction to deter mosquitos from your property.
- Maintain your lawn and shrubbery so that mosquitoes don’t try and make those shaded areas their home. Try to maintain your landscaping by keeping wood, mulch and flowers slightly away from the perimeter of your house to prevent pests.
- Ensure all window and door screens are in good condition without any holes that bugs could sneak through.
- If you have a pond on your property, install an aeration pump, fountain or water bubbler to keep water circulating. Replace pet water dishes and bird baths with fresh water at least once a week.
Apply Protection Directly to Yourself and Loved Ones
There are many ways you can prevent mosquito bites; however, the most effective way is through directly applying insect repellents to your skin. You should be outside fully enjoying the remainder of this summer, without the threat or constant bombardment of biting insects. It is recommended to reapply insect repellent every three hours and after applying sunscreen. Even though most mosquito bites are simply an annoyance, there is a growing chance of contracting a mosquito-borne illness, such as Zika. Therefore, take action by applying insect repellent before they bite.
