The Secret To Successful Mosquito Control For Your Jacksonville Lawn
May 20, 2020
The greater Jacksonville area is home to several natural dangers. We have black widow and brown recluse spiders. We have rattlesnakes, cottonmouth snakes, and copperhead snakes. We even see the occasional alligator. Each of these animals can be dangerous to pets and to humans, but none pose a risk to our safety as much as a common tiny flying insect - an insect we all know as the mosquito.
Mosquitoes are an insect that lays eggs in standing water. They start out as an aquatic larva before growing into flying creatures that track humans through their breathing. Every time we breathe during mosquito season, all the nearby mosquitoes fly closer toward us, zoning in on the CO2 we exhale.
Mosquitoes want a little of our blood to drink. They never take enough to hurt a full-grown person. The problem is, they don't distinguish between their victims. They may feed on a half-dead sewer rat with typhoid fever right before biting a human. This is why mosquitoes are considered one of the most dangerous pests on the planet, not just in Jacksonville Florida.
Luckily Lindsey Pest Services Is In Jacksonville
Mosquitoes are one of the most dangerous pests on Earth, but here in Jacksonville there is help. We don't have to submit to Dengue fever because we have better options. Our families can stay typhoid fever free by understanding the risks that come with untreated mosquito populations and taking proactive measures to reduce mosquito populations. Even mosquitoes that are not infected are a miserable pest to contend with. There are healthy mosquitoes, and there are sick mosquitoes, but the only good mosquito is a dead mosquito.
Some DIY Options Are Better Than Others
People do a lot of things to attempt to rid their yards of mosquitoes. They use tiki torches, consume huge quantities of garlic, and even line their yards with mosquito-repelling plants. Some of these options are better than others. Plant all the sage and burn all the citronella candles you want; These DIY remedies might help a little to deter mosquitoes for a while, but they do nothing to reduce the mosquito population on your property.
The best option for reducing mosquito activity on your Jacksonville property involves monitoring standing water. Getting rid of pools of stagnant water stops mosquito eggs from germinating. Be sure to pay particular attention to items in your lawn that may collect rainwater and clean them out regularly. Bird baths, tire swings, and wheelbarrows serve as more than adequate places for mosquitoes to lay eggs. Also, check the drainage on your property to ensure that it is functioning optimally.
Regardless, mosquitoes can fly and track you down as long as you're breathing. So even if you stop mosquitoes from reproducing in your own yard, they will still likely pay you a visit this summer.
