Mosquito Squad of Charlotte wants to remind you to take a stroll around your property and tip over any areas where water can pool. Even the smallest space with water, such as a discarded soda bottle top, can be the perfect breeding ground for a mosquito to lay 100’s of eggs. Here’s an easy checklist to mosquito proofing your backyard.
Tip anything around your home that can collect water from rain or your sprinkler system. Dog bowls, plant saucers, clogged gutters and kid’s toys left out in the yard can collect enough water to be a perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes.
Remove excess grass, weeds from gardens, leaves, firewood and other leftover clippings from yards.
Turn over larger yard items that could hold water like baby pools, children’s portable sandboxes or plastic toys.
If tarps stretched over firewood piles, grills or boats aren’t taut, they’re holding water.
