Professional Tips for Mosquito Control
Mosquitoes are some of the worst pests to have around in your compound because they help to spread the malaria killer disease. The female anopheles is known to carry the plasmodium bacteria. When the mosquito bites an infected person and then comes and bites a healthy person, it injects the bacteria into the bloodstream of the healthy person. For these reasons mosquitoes need to be repelled at all costs and discouraged to thrive where people live.
Here in this article we take you through the various tips that you can follow to professionally control mosquitoes from your compound.
Slash the grass near the house and keep them short
Mowing the grass in the compound and keeping them short helps to effectively control mosquitoes in any given home. Mosquitoes like to hide from the scorching heat of the sun under grass and bushy areas. Where their habitat is left exposed to the harsh sun during the day, most of them die or simply move away from the house. Bushy areas are also a perfect haven for them to breed and what better way to prevent them from breeding by mowing all that tall grass to reduce their numbers?
Eliminate any standing water
Mosquitoes like to breed in water and it is surprising that even very small water available for them will enable them to breed in their huge numbers! For this reason you should take proper care of your compound to ensure that you drain any stagnant water. This will ensure that less mosquitoes actually breed in a space near you area. Just ensure that there is no water left for the menacing and dangerous insects to breed. The insects are not just dangerous but inconveniencing also with their disgusting sound when you need to sleep at night.
