Heavy rain and flooding means an abundance of mosquitoes. Standing water is the ideal breeding area for mosquitoes. In order to reduce the mosquito population on your property eliminate standing water. Anything left outside that can collect water is a potential breeding spot. Wheel barrels, watering cans, children’s pools, saucers on the bottom of pots, etc. Some less obvious locations might be grill covers, tarps, clogged gutters, or drainage ditches. Bats, birds, frogs, and dragonflies are all beneficial predators of the mosquito. Reduce excess brush and tall weeds.
