If your backyard resembles an old encampment due to the ridiculous number of tiki torches filled with citronella, Alert The Squad. Citronella candles aren’t very effective against mosquitoes in large droves. So, if you’d like to stop spraying yourself with DEET and other chemicals every time you’d like to enjoy sitting in your backyard, just give us a call. We’ll apply our barrier application every three weeks and make sure that all mosquito breeding areas are removed. In between our visits, you can also take precautions that will help to reduce the number of areas where mosquitoes can breed in your yard.

The 7 T’s of Mosquito Control

  • Tip: Tip over items in your yard to reduce standing water. The elimination of standing water decreases a mosquito’s breeding ground. Check your property and tip over drainage catch basins, bird baths, hoses and sprinkling cans, tire swings, water bottles or beverage cans. The smallest amount of water is a great place for a female mosquito to lay her 300 eggs.
  • Toss: Toss grass clippings, leaves, firewood and piles of mulch that are yard trash. By keeping a yard clean, you can remove a major breeding area for mosquitoes. Check your yard, underneath decks, in gutters and along rooflines for accumulation of dead leaves, piles of fallen branches, or excess mulch. This is a great place for breeding insects.
  • Turn: Turn over yard items that could hold water. Look for dog bowls, plant saucers, empty pots, sand boxes, plastic toys, or even garbage bins that are not being used. These items tend to fill with rain water and offer a great spot for breeding. Turn them over when not in use.
  • Remove Tarps: If tarps stretched over firewood piles, boats or sports equipment aren’t taut, they’re holding water. Problem items cited most by Mosquito Squad technicians include tarps over boats, wood piles, grills, portable fire places, and even sports equipment bags. The smallest amount of water (about the size of a bottle cap) is all a mosquito needs to breed.
  • Take Care: Take care of home maintenance needs that can contribute to standing water. Areas where water pools, such as near faucets or water spouts, leaking irrigation systems, clogged gutters, all of these places offer a breeding haven for mosquitoes.
  • Team Up: Despite taking all precautions in your own home, talking with neighbors is a key component to mosquito control. Townhomes and homes with little space between lots mean that mosquitoes can breed at a neighbor’s home, and affect your property.
  • Treat: Mosquito Squad’s treatments eliminate 85-90% of the mosquitoes on your property and reduce the need for using DEET containing bug spray on your body. Take back your backyard and kick those pesky bugs to the curb!
