You step outside and you’re under attack by mosquitoes. Everyone knows this frustration. However, mosquitoes can also carry diseases such as Zika and West Nile. Therefore, hiring a professional mosquito control service is essential to stop mosquitoes.

What Attracts Mosquitoes to My Yard?

Female mosquitoes need the iron and protein in your blood to reproduce. This is why they are so intent on biting you. Once they have your blood, they just need somewhere to lay eggs.

Mosquitoes are attracted to and breed in environments with standing, stagnant water. The following are common places of your yard that mosquitoes may be attracted to:

  • gutters
  • dog bowls
  • bird baths
  • containers (such as bottle caps)

You can do your best to minimize stagnant water on your property. However, you don’t have control over what your neighbors do. Therefore, it’s essential to have effective mosquito control.

The following are just a few tips on how to protect yourself from mosquitoes:

  • Drain any standing water
  • Wear long sleeves and long pants
  • Avoid going outdoors at dusk and dawn
  • Use insect repellent
