Mosquitoes can ruin a fun summer night here in Nebraska, and while it may seem difficult to keep these pests off your property, there are a few simple ways to reduce the population. Mosquitoes love living under leaves and twigs, and clogged gutters are filled with debris and standing water. Cleaning up debris on your lawn and clearing out your gutters will help deter mosquitoes from making a home on your property. Similarly, mosquitoes breed using standing water, so removing anything that could accumulate water will keep these pests away. While all of these are great ways to reduce the mosquito population, nothing will be as effective as hiring professionals to take care of them for you.
Clean up debris from your property so mosquitoes don't have a place to live.
Do you have any piles of leaves or stray branches on your lawn? If so, they might be the reason mosquitoes are swarming your property. Mosquitoes love to use debris as a shelter because it provides shade from the sun and keeps them safe from strong winds. When you regularly clean up debris, mosquitoes will go find other debris-heavy places to live, greatly reducing those that seek shelter on your property. Not only that, but it keeps your lawn looking neat!
Debris can attract other pests besides mosquitoes, including ticks and fleas, so it's best to keep your yard clear of anything they can use to hide.
Make sure your gutters aren't clogged so mosquitoes can't live or breed in them.
Gutters are often out of sight, but they definitely shouldn’t be out of mind when it comes to mosquitoes! Your gutters can easily become clogged with leaves, sticks, and other debris, which makes an ideal environment for mosquitoes to live in. Clogged gutters also fill up with standing water, which mosquitoes use to breed. When you clean your gutters, not only will you reduce the mosquito population, but you’ll have functioning gutters again!
Get rid of any standing water on your property that mosquitoes could use to breed.
Standing water is like paradise for mosquitoes because they use it to lay their eggs and breed. It’s best to remove everything that can accumulate standing water or at least refresh the water frequently to keep these pests at bay. Some common places that may have standing water include dog bowls, bird baths, and kiddie pools. Mosquitoes can even breed in something as small as a water bottle cap if there’s water in it! If you remove standing water from your property, mosquitoes will have one less place to breed and may move on to find another spot.
Hire professionals to help reduce the mosquito population on your property.
While cleaning up your lawn, removing debris from your gutters, and dumping standing water will help control the mosquito population on your property, nothing is as effective as hiring professionals to take care of them.
