Dealing with Mosquitoes
No one needs to tell anyone who has spent at least one summer in the Greater Tampa Bay Area that mosquitoes can be a pesky problem. You do not have to be in the middle of the Everglades or out in a nature preserve to get bitten by a mosquito. Property owners in the Greater Tampa Bay Area who like to spend time on their patio or in their backyard should be prepared to deal with nature’s most annoying little pests.
Before you decide to buy a big bottle of insect repellant and douse yourself with the not so pleasant fragrance, you should consider a better way of fighting off the mosquito population. Summer is a particularly active season for mosquitoes. There are torrential rain storms that can leave inches of standing water everywhere. While heavy rains do help to solve drought conditions and reduce the risk of wildfire, they also help provide the perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes.
You can buy those torches that claim to protect you from all flying insects or light some citronella candles that are also supposed to provide relief. There are other contraptions that use high frequency vibrations to discourage mosquitoes from gathering in the area. No matter how much money you spend, it always seems that you are fighting a losing battle.
Why should I be worried about Mosquitoes?
They are an enormous health threat!
Mosquitoes have caused more human suffering than any other organism, more than 1,000,000 people die from Mosquito-borne diseases each year. Mosquitoes are very common in the Greater Tampa Bay Area Area.
- Malaria, Dengue, Yellow Fever St. Louis Encephalitis, Lacrosse Encephalitis, West Nile Virus
How can I control Mosquitoes in my yard?
Mosquitoes require water to breed. Eliminate any water sources, even small amounts like moist soil or leaf litter. Keep your property free of any items that can hold water.
Adult Mosquitoes rest during the day, usually on or in moist tall grass, weeds bushes and siding. They make your yard less welcoming. You can prevent mosquites by mowing and trimming your grass, weeds and bushes regularly.
