First of all, mosquitoes lay their eggs and thrive in still water. It’s important to reduce potential mosquito breeding grounds by ridding your lawn and property of areas that contain still water. Emptying or covering anything in your lawn that can hold still water will greatly reduce your risk of being exposed to disease carrying pests. Swimming pool covers, birdbaths, flower pots, buckets, cans, and barrels should be emptied of any standing water. You should also pay close attention to your home’s rain gutters, built up leaves in your homes eaves, and any water that collects on your home’s roof.

Mosquito species found in Massachusetts are generally most active in the evening and nighttime. Keeping you and your family properly covered with appropriate clothing can highly reduce the risk of being bitten by mosquitoes. When out in your lawn during this time, make sure to wear long sleeve shirts, loose pants, and socks. Applying a thin layer of insect repellant is also a good way to reduce your chances of getting bit by mosquitoes while enjoying your lawn. Following these simple tips combined with our mosquito control and organic lawn care in Massachusetts will help to ensure that you, your friends, and your family are safe while enjoying your lawn.
