As a general consensus, mosquitoes are some of the most annoying bugs around. To effectively rid your yard of mosquitoes, it's important to know where they breed to nip the process in the bud. Alternative EarthCare reveals four of the main nesting grounds for mosquitoes:
1. Ponds and pools. Since mosquitoes cannot breed in flowing water, still water is the biggest culprit of mosquito infestations. Treat your pool at least once a week to keep the chemical balance optimal for mosquito repellant. Similarly, dump any sources standing water you may have lingering on your property.
2. Trash cans. An outdoor trash can is one of the biggest collectors of water around your home. As the water sits at the bottom of the bin, mosquitoes are drawn to it and will pursue the opportunity to start their family at the bottom. Either drill holes in the bottom or keep the lid on tight in order to prevent this.
3. Pipes and hoses. Since hoses don't get flushed very often, keep them sealed to prevent mosquitoes from breeding in the still water that's left to sit inside. An effective way to do this without inconveniencing yourself is to add a spray nozzle that screws on tightly and creates a seal.
4. Home furnishings. Even the furnishings around your home and yard can be breeding grounds for mosquitoes. These include gutters, flower pots, planters, and even irrigation control boxes. Keep a close eye on these areas to treat them before the mosquitoes find their way in.
