Mosquitos are a classic part of NC summers, but here’s how you can maintain order with mosquito control options for your home.
Mosquitos are one of the hazards of North Carolina summers, right up there with hot temperatures and high humidity. These pests can make a summer get-together go from outdoor fun to an indoor retreat pretty quickly if they’re particularly bad. If your outdoor living space is facing a mosquito infestation, check out some of the ideas below to help you regain control of your space.
To understand how things got to this point, take a closer look at your lawn and consider the following:
Mosquitoes lay their eggs in water, and even the slightest amount can be a breeding ground. You should remove water from wherever possible and empty out and refill decorative water displays at least once a week. Additionally, keeping your lawn clutter-free and well-maintained can only help further.
Household-safe repellents are one way you can reduce your mosquito problem. Though great for outdoor use, you should make sure to follow instructions to the letter. Certain bug-repelling products can have harmful effects with prolonged exposure to skin – the label will be sure to tell you if so!
If you have pets, children, or allergies that make store-bought repellents a poor choice for your home, there are several natural ways to maintain order in your yard.
