How Can I Prevent Mosquitoes In My Backyard This Spring?

Written by Frank on . Posted in SWAT News

How can I prevent mosquitoes in my backyard? Ask SWATIt is safe to say that one of the greatest threats to most backyard activities here in Marietta is the pesky mosquito. Many of our family barbecues, campfires, or yard games have been much less enjoyable due to these annoying little bugs that seem to show up just as things are getting good. No one wants to be outside slapping your legs and arms the whole time. That’s why SWAT Services wants to share a few ideas to prevent mosquitoes, so that you and your family can enjoy the backyard with out the headache.

Why It’s Important

Each spring and into summer these mosquitos affect everyone. When they come out in the cooler early morning or the evening, they bring with them more than just the annoying buzzing sound and itchy welts that can last for days. Mosquitoes are well-known for carrying a multitude of diseases that can be easily spread to people. Diseases like Saint Louis encephalitis, Western equine encephalitis, West Nile virus, yellow fever, and the Zika virus, are all devastating diseases transmitted by mosquitoes in the United States, especially in warm and humid climates like hear in Georgia.

Tips to Minimize Mosquito Activity

It is possible to keep the mosquito population down around your property. Look around at any empty pots, bird baths, or other receptacles that might hold water. Emptying those on a regular basis can take away the spots where mosquitoes lay eggs. Make sure that the grass and any brush is well trimmed. These areas provide cool spots for mosquitoes to spend their days waiting for the sun to disappear. It is the same thing with overgrown trees and garden areas around the house. Trimming these areas down might make mosquitoes look elsewhere to hide during the warmest parts of the day.

Maintaining these areas can go a long way to reduce the population of mosquitoes. But let’s face it – this is Georgia and it is generally a humid place to be, especially in the Spring and Summer. Automatically, thousands of mosquitoes are going to call any given yard home. Swatting mosquitoes is no way to have to spend every evening.
