Homeowners often think of Mosquito Squad as the company that provides yard spray for mosquito protection, and we do. But protection from mosquitoes requires working together with you playing a key role in that protection.
Water, agua, the nector of the Gods, the mosquito breeding pools!
Water is the life saving source. Without water; every man, woman, and child would disappear. Without water, plants would wither and die. Without water, life on this planet would end. And, without standing water, mosquitoes would not be able to breed. All the mosquito protection in the world is only going to help so much if your yard is littered with standing water. When we come treat your yard, our applicators are trained to see your yard like a mosquito sees it. We look for obvious places that standing water pools such as in children’s play toys or even in the rims of flower pots. Flowerpot bases and other water collection spots are essentially mosquito motels. So while our technicians may tip over a children’s bucket full of standing water, it’s critical that you also do your part.
We take standing water collection so seriously that we’ve developed the 5 t’s for avoiding and reducing standing water in your yard.
Tip anything around your home that can collect water from rain or your sprinkler system. Dog bowls, plant saucers, clogged gutters and kid’s toys left out in the yard can collect enough water to be a perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes.
Remove excess grass, weeds from gardens, leaves, firewood and other leftover clippings from yards.
Turn over larger yard items that could hold water like baby pools, children’s portable sandboxes or plastic toys.
4. REMOVE TARPS
If tarps stretched over firewood piles, grills or boats aren’t taut, they’re holding water.
