Mosquito Control Products

Mosquitos go through a complete metamorphosis: eggs, larvae, pupae then adults. Eggs are laid in standing water. The larvae then grows in the standing water. As a home owner, removing standing water and making desirable water uninhabitable by mosquitoes is the key to reducing mosquito populations. Removing the breeding sites wont stop mosquitoes from entering the property, but it will keep them from multiplying there.

Check gutters, making sure they aren't clogged. Eliminate accumulation of water in places like tires, cans, barrels, etc. Place Mosquito Bits anywhere standing water accumulates on a regular basis. Clean out bird baths once a week to remove new mosquito larvae. If you own a pool, check for standing water around the pool in foliage, etc. Also check the pool drains located away from the pool deck because they often have standing water where mosquitoes can breed. Use mosquito bits in the drains to keep the water from becoming a breeding location.
