Mosquitos love Arizona, and that’s a fact! However, you probably love Arizona too- but you don’t love mosquitos. If you’re like many people, keeping them out of your backyard living space this summer is an absolute must, but is there really anything you can do? These prevention tips for Arizona mosquitos can help.
The key to prevention is to know what you’re dealing with. Mosquitos are one of the easiest bugs in your yard to identify. Short of their distinctive whine, mosquitos can also be identified by their coloration and size.
They’re brown, but you can often see when they’ve recently found prey- their clear abdomen will be a bright red color because it’s full of blood. They have an arched body and only one set of wings, and often hang out near water. That’s where they lay their eggs, and where their larvae hatch from.
However, mosquitos have also been known to carry dangerous diseases- everything from West Nile to Zika. That’s not something you want near your home, so it’s time for a little bit of mosquito control.
Mosquito Prevention and Elimination
Fortunately, there are several ways to get rid of mosquitos in and around your home.
- Keep your yard neat and tidy! Mowing your lawn regularly, and ensuring all trees and bushes grow safely away from buildings is a great idea to keep mosquitos off your property.
- Keep it dry! If you notice any problem puddles or other sources of standing water, eliminate them immediately. They’re breeding grounds for mosquitoes.
- Keep it sealed! You can easily caulk up any cracks in your foundation or walls, and re-weatherproof to keep all the pests out. Try new screens on your windows and doors, too.
It may also help to know when mosquitoes will be outside. Mosquitos are most active at dawn and dusk, so if you and your pets don’t spend too long outside in either of these spaces, you’re less likely to get bitten.
