Summer is often the time for outdoor entertaining, graduation parties, Fourth of July parties, block parties and picnics. Outdoor living is a huge trend now, as homeowners are building outdoor kitchens, fire pits, and multi-level decks. Do you ever want to stroll outside with a glass of wine on a summer evening, but dread the mosquito bites and itching you’ll get if you do? We have a solution for mosquito control–a solution to eliminate mosquitos!
Mosquitoes are not only an irritant but can also carry many diseases that are harmful both to humans and pets. Females of the species are the ones who feed on human and animal blood. Besides being a nuisance, they are known to carry serious and at times fatal diseases, including yellow fever, Zika fever, malaria, and dengue. West Nile virus is also an issue in Ohio. Most mosquitoes in the US are nuisance mosquitoes. These mosquitoes do not spread germs that make people sick. However, why take a chance?
Besides regular spraying to control and eradicate mosquitos in our yards, homeowners can also take precautions to prevent standing water. Eggs are laid on the surface of water and hatch into larvae, often called wrigglers. Nuisance mosquitoes become an issue following heavy rains or flooding.
Recommendations for Mosquito Control in Cincinnati
Over 200 types of mosquitoes live in the continental US and its territories; but only about 12 kinds spread germs that make humans ill. In general, nuisance mosquitoes do not spread germs. However, we recommend treatment to prevent bites from any species.
To effect mosquito control, we also recommend the following ways to prevent mosquitos from laying eggs in standing water:
- Do not leave tubs, buckets, or containers out in the rain, or if you do, turn them upside down.
- Scrub, cover or throw away any items that hold water like tires, empty planters, toys, pools, birdbaths, or trash cans.
- Cover water storage containers such as cisterns or rain barrels so mosquitoes cannot get in. Cover exposed open plumbing pipes.
- Repair any cracks in septic tanks.
