Mosquito-borne illnesses continue to plague communities throughout the United States. With recent outbreaks of mosquito-borne illnesses in Florida, homeowners everywhere should take steps to protect their family.
Homeowners should consider employing a pest professional to help them control this pest.
As evidenced by the increasing incidence of West Nile Virus, mosquito infestations continue well into the year.
The National Pest Management Association and Hulett Environmental offer the following advice on keeping mosquitoes out of homes:
- Eliminate potential mosquito breading grounds like birdbaths and baby pools by changing the water at least once per week.
- Remove excess vegetation around any standing water sources that cannot be changed, dumped or removed.
- Check your screens for any holes to keep them out of your house.
