Empty TireMosquito season is here, and the warm, humid temperatures and standing water from recent rain provides the perfect breeding zone for these unwanted pests. While Zone’s mosquito reduction program is considered the most effective method for getting rid of mosquitos, our pest control experts want to offer some straight-forward tips to keep mosquitos away from your yard:

• Remove anything in the yard that holds water from rainfall (trashcan lids, recycle bins, tires, empty flower pots, buckets, children’s toys, etc. — even something as small as an upside down bottle cap can hold enough water for mosquitos to breed).

• Clean your gutters and remove debris from them regularly so that they don’t become a “collection point” for standing water.

• Keep shrubs and leafy trees trimmed. Mosquitos prefer shady areas, so limiting overgrowth is important.
