"Due to an unusually warm winter in most parts of the country, mosquito season is arriving early this year and more people need to be aware of the type of species they will be facing," said Josh Ingram, vice president of operations for MosquitoNix. "We understand first-hand the dangers these biting insects can have, and we are determined about helping families take control of their homes again."
Ingram continues to discuss the need for understanding the science behind mosquitos, which can keep homeowners from spending thousands of dollars on costly treatments and ongoing, unnecessary maintenance. With that better insight on how to protect one’s outdoor living spaces this summer, the following tips can provide a fresh start in keeping those pesky mosquitos away in no time. These include:
-Limit breeding habitat. Mosquitos require water to breed, but their access to standing water can be prevented by keeping gutters clean and unclogged, pools chlorinated, walking the property after a rain, aerating ornamental ponds to keep water moving and dumping anything that holds water twice per week.
-Replace outdoor lights with “bug” lights. While they are not intended to be mosquito barriers, they do not attract mosquitoes as much as other incandescent lights.
-Window and door screens. They should be 16-18 inches mesh, must be a comfortable fit without gaps around the edges, and replaced as needed, because they stop mosquitoes and maintain ventilation within the home.
“When it comes to mosquito control, we take pride in our service offerings,” said Dan O’Neal, CEO of MosquitoNix. “We understand the stress homeowners have during this time of year, and the lack of a freeze will increase that stress.
