Controlling mosquito populations during a Massachusetts summer might sound like a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be. Mosquitoes hibernate during cooler months and hatch when the weather reaches 50 degrees or higher. In Massachusetts, you’ll find mosquitoes hatching primarily from May to August. Start preparing your property now to limit the risk of disease-transmitting mosquitoes hatching in your backyard. AllGreen Lawncare can assist you with season-long mosquito control treatments to your Massachusetts home.
Prevent breeding zones
It’s that time of year again. Your backyard is where most of your mosquito control issues begin. Mosquitoes love shady and wet conditions! Lawn ornaments, chairs, and toys left outside can pool water and provide a thriving environment for mosquitoes to breed. The best places to clean are gutters, planters, birdbaths, and small ponds with little moving water. Keeping these areas in check will allow for fewer areas around your home that provide breeding zones for mosquitoes. A mosquito usually doesn’t fly 900 feet from where they hatched, so eliminating these zones will help to stop mosquitoes from swarming your family!
Watch the clock
Mosquitoes are most active during the evening. Enjoying the sunset can be frustrating if you have to keep batting away ankle biters! Mosquitos typically don’t bite during the day and avoid being out when the sun and heat are at their peak. Mosquito control in Massachusetts can provide treatments to your property that keep these pests at bay. Keep your kids from itching their arms and legs after a beautiful evening outside. Don’t let mosquitos have the opportunity to bite!
Mosquito Transmitted Diseases in Massachusetts
If you thought you couldn’t get a mosquito-transmitted disease in Massachusetts, think again.
Mosquito control is crucial for hot spots in Massachusetts that have a higher risk for West Nile Virus and Eastern Equine Encephalitis (Triple E). Last year, there was a confirmed case of West Nile Virus in Needham, MA! These viruses range in symptoms but can have serious health effects. Eliminate the risk by taking care of your yard and start your mosquito control program.
