Top 10 Mosquito Breeding Sites on Your Property
Did you know mosquitos are considered aquatic insects? That's because they spend a portion of their lifecycle in water. In fact, all mosquitos need water to successfully breed.
Eliminating standing water is an essential step in reducing the number of mosquitos around your home. Remember, it only takes a cap full of water left unchecked to cause a season's worth of bites. The good news, however, is preventing breeding from occurring around your home is something you can easily do, so long as you know where to look.
