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.
