Everything You Need To Know To Keep Queen Creek Mosquitoes Away
May 31, 2021
If there’s one thing we can all agree on here in Queen Creek, it’s that mosquitoes are just about the worst pest you can expect to find around your Arizona lawn.
As spring quickly begins to fade into summer, pest activity is beginning to pick up once again. We rarely have any cold winters here, and usually do not face any significant freezes, which puts insects like mosquitoes at a huge advantage. Posited eggs are beginning to hatch, larvae are beginning to turn into adults, and hungry adult mosquitoes are starting to hunt for an unlimited blood supply.
You may not have seen a mosquito up close, but chances are that you’ve noticed one of these annoying bugs whining up close to your ear. A set of six long legs and an enormous proboscis enable these creatures to hunt and prey with ease, spreading out across your backyard in search of a meal. No one is truly immune from the bite of a mosquito, even with the use of over-the-counter sprays. However, some individuals will be more attractive to mosquitoes than others. Pregnant women, people with a higher level of alcohol in their bloodstream, and even those with type O blood tend to be bitten by mosquitoes more often than others. In any case, mosquitoes will be inclined to target you regardless of what products you use against them. Here’s what you need to know to keep Queen Creek mosquitoes away from your home!
Protecting Your Queen Creek Home From Mosquito Activity
Before you decide to put mosquito prevention steps in place, you should be aware of the reasons why homeowners would want to make it a chore in the first place. First and foremost involves the health dangers of these pests. Mosquitoes are extremely virile and are capable of transporting the vilest types of diseases imaginable. Some of the worst of these may include:
West Nile virus
For this reason, mosquitoes are considered to be one of the most dangerous animals on the face of the planet. Armed with newfound knowledge (and some passion for your family’s health), protect your Queen Creek home with these mosquito reducing tips:
Wear light-colored clothing while out in the yard. Avoid anything skintight, as mosquitoes can likely bite through the material. If possible, tuck your pant legs into your socks to create a mosquito-proof barrier for your ankles.
Avoid spending too much time outdoors when mosquitoes are most active. Cool evenings and mornings are their favorite times to prowl.
Dump out any standing water sources, including water buildup in fountains, tarps, birdbaths, and other areas.
