In order to have effective mosquito control in Peachtree City, GA and elsewhere, it is important to know what steps to take. Learn the proper steps below so that you can have effective mosquito control to keep these pests from becoming a nuisance or even a threat to your health.

Protecting Yourself Through Clothing and Repellents

Quality mosquito control is not only effective at keeping mosquitoes from becoming a nuisance in your home, but also prevents you from getting such deadly diseases as West Nile Virus and Yellow Fever.  

While outdoors, it is important for you to wear long-sleeved clothing or pants whenever possible to lessen the likelihood of mosquito bites. Reducing your skin exposure will make it less likely that you get bit by mosquitoes. When wearing proper garments is not practical or possible, use mosquito repellents (especially those with “DEET” in them), which can be effective in keeping mosquitoes from landing on your skin and biting you.

Eliminating Breeding Places

Mosquitoes like to breed in any location with standing water (i.e. puddles and pools of water). These can include bird baths, tires, or buckets. Be sure all containers are removed from the outside (keep them in the garage or on a patio away from rain), and cycle water through bird baths as often as possible to cut down on the number of mosquitoes around your home.
