Are Mosquitoes Ruining Your Summer Fun? Keep Them Away With These Tips | Turf Badger

No One Does Pest Control Like Turf Badger!
Summers are meant for soaking up the sun and the beautiful weather in Wisconsin, but if mosquitoes have overtaken your property, they can ruin your summer fun. While keeping your property completely free of mosquitoes is challenging, there are things you can do to make your property unappealing to them. You should remove any standing water from your property, as mosquitoes need it to breed. You should also keep debris from piling up on your lawn and you should keep your grass trimmed and neat because mosquitoes love to hide in debris piles and tall grass. The best way to reduce the mosquito population on your property is to schedule professional mosquito treatments.

Limit the Standing Water on Your Property

Mosquitoes need standing water to breed, so if there’s any standing water on your property, they’ll likely find it and turn it into a breeding ground. To limit the number of mosquitoes on your property, remove places standing water exists. You can do this by:
  • Refreshing the water in bird baths and water bowls frequently
  • Adding bubblers to your ponds to keep the water constantly moving
  • Flipping over containers like trashcans and buckets so they don't fill with water when it rains

Keep Debris From Piling Up On Your Property

Dead leaves and branches may not seem like something a mosquito is attracted to, but any debris on your property becomes an area mosquitoes can hide and multiply. Debris provides mosquitoes with a shady and moist environment that will provide them with protection from the wind and predators. Even clogged gutters retain water and are places mosquitoes lay eggs. Make sure to clean your yard of debris to limit places mosquitoes can multiply.

Keep Your Grass Trimmed & Neat

Areas with thick plant growth can easily hold moisture and are shady areas for mosquitoes to hide. If your lawn isn’t trimmed and neat, it can turn into one of these areas! To make your lawn unappealing to mosquitoes, you should keep your grass short when you mow it. You should also mow your grass frequently and bag your extra lawn clippings instead of leaving them out on the lawn. By keeping up with your lawn during the summer, you will limit the places that mosquitoes can hide and breed, and they may move on to another property that provides more favorable conditions for them.

Make sure pots and landscape beds have adequate drainage so that these places do not become areas for mosquitoes to multiply.

Schedule Professional Mosquito Control Treatments

The best way to make sure mosquitoes do not ruin your summer is to schedule professional mosquito control treatments. In Wisconsin, the wet season starts in April and lasts through October, and parallels mosquito season. Therefore, scheduling a mosquito program that runs throughout the summer is essential to keep these pests off of your property. Professionals use foggers to apply mosquito control treatments while targeting areas where mosquitoes typically live and breed the most. They will make sure to return to reapply their treatments before the previous application wears off. This way, there will be no lapse in coverage and you’ll be able to enjoy a mostly mosquito-free property throughout the summer.
