Keep Mosquitoes Away from your Summer Fun

 

Mosquito prevention
Mow your lawn regularly to make your yard less hospitable for mosquitoes.

 

Summer is quickly approaching, which means quarantined families can spend more time outdoors. Whether grilling out for Memorial Day or playing a game of backyard softball, mosquitoes and other pests are sure to make an appearance. But, you can BITE BACK!

It’s important to fight a mosquito infestation even if you don’t live in an area where cases of mosquito-borne illnesses have occurred. Mosquitoes still carry diseases and parasites that harm pets and livestock, such as heartworm in dogs.

The Mosquito Threat

Mosquito season begins in parts of the United States in early spring and runs through the summer months. Climate is a leading factor in determining mosquito populations, and also correlates to whether a mosquito-borne illness surges or remains dormant from year to year. With this past winter being unusually wet and mild, it’s likely that we will see increased mosquito populations.

Follow these simple steps to keep mosquitoes from ruining your fun:

  • Stay indoors during dawn or dusk, when mosquitoes are most active.
  • Close windows and doors.
  • Install screens on windows.
  • When you do go out, wear mosquito repellent with DEET to protect bare skin.
  • Cover up with light-colored clothing, long pants and long sleeves.
  • Keep your lawn cut short and your gardens well-maintained.
  • Eliminate any sources of standing water in your yard to prevent mosquito breeding.
  • After outside time, inspect your pet thoroughly. Brush their coat to remove any debris or insects. Be especially vigilant if your pet has been in wooded areas or high grasses, where pests thrive.
