The 5 T’s for Integrated Mosquito Control Management
Enjoy outdoor living with these five tips for mosquito control from Mosquito Squad of Northwest WI!
We are offering strategies to help you enjoy outdoor living, including the following five tips for mosquito control:
Reduce standing water to eliminate mosquito threats, including those in children’s sandboxes, wagons or plastic toys; underneath and around downspouts, in plant saucers and dog bowls. Other hot spots include tarps, gutters, and flat roofs.
Remove excess grass, leaves, firewood and clippings from yards.
Turn over larger yard items that could hold water like children’s portable sandboxes or plastic toys.
If tarps stretched over firewood piles, boats or sports equipment aren’t taut, they’re holding water.
Utilize a mosquito elimination barrier treatment around the home and yard. Using a barrier treatment at home reduces the need for using DEET-containing bug spray on the body. Mosquito Squad’s eliminates up to 90% of the mosquitoes and ticks on a property.
