It can be argued that there is no place as beautiful as Florida. Where else on earth can you decide you’d rather swim in the Gulf of Mexico than the Atlantic Ocean and make a day trip of it? However, despite Florida's upsides, we do have one major downside, the mosquitoes. Our warm weather and humid climate combined make the perfect storm for mosquito activity. This can make enjoying the outdoors a difficult task, but does it mean your property has to have this problem? Maybe not.
Factors That Lead To Mosquito Problems
Typically mosquitoes lay their eggs during the winter months, and more specifically when the temperatures are around 50 degrees. Then when the weather heats up, mosquito season begins. Sometimes this happens as early as February, but this is rare. More commonly, mosquito season will start sometime in spring and reach its peak around mid-summer. This means now is the best time to begin your preparations to keep mosquitoes away.
Why Mosquitoes Are So Hard To Treat Alone
There are some things you can do as a homeowner to reduce your chances of having mosquitoes on and around your property. You can search around your home for sources of stagnant water where female mosquitoes lay their eggs and eliminate these sources. You can install fans in outdoor lounging areas. This will make it extremely difficult for mosquitoes, who are lousy flyers, to land on you and bite you. However, these are not sure-fire solutions. If nearby areas have standing water, what you do on your property will not be enough to fully deal with the problem. And installing fans can only do so much. These facts may leave you wondering what you can do next. Here is what we recommend.
