Once the long winter is over we usually cannot wait to get outside to enjoy the sunshine and warm weather. The first few weeks of spring are glorious! Neighbors are out walking their dogs, kids are playing into the evening and everyone is enjoying all that spring has to offer. Then one evening you are sitting on your deck and you hear that dreaded buzzing – the pesky mosquito. It’s then that you remember that you had wanted to call American Pest Solutions for mosquito control for your Bristol home, but like every year you got busy and forgot.

Mosquito Control Tips

Mosquitoes are not just annoying with their constant buzzing and itchy bites, they can carry harmful diseases. To minimize mosquitoes in your yard and avoid getting bitten there are several things you can do:

  • Eliminate water sources where mosquitoes like to breed. Dump out any pails or water buckets, empty kiddie pools each night, keep bird baths away from sitting areas, minimize lawn and garden watering to avoid puddles and excessively damp ground.
  • Plant grasses and flowers that mosquitoes are not fond of around your decks, patios, and pool areas. Some of these include lavender, marigolds, lemongrass, basil, and catnip.
  • Keep grass cut short, remove decaying leaf piles and other yard debris.

Professional Mosquito Control Services

The most important thing you can do is remember to call the professionals at American Pest Solutions to come up with a mosquito control plan. While taking the steps above will help keep a lot of mosquitoes at bay, it will not eliminate them entirely. If you have any water sources like streams, ponds, wetlands, or even a swimming pool that you can’t get rid of, they will attract mosquitoes. Also, even with do-it-yourself mosquito control, it’s just inevitable that mosquitoes will fly their way into your Bristol backyard.

The professionals at American Pest Solutions will assess your property and come up with a plan that is minimally invasive to cut down on the number of mosquitoes. There is no way to completely eliminate mosquitoes, but with mosquito control from American Pest Solutions, the biting mosquitoes are eliminated by spraying the areas where mosquitoes are likely to nest and breed. This helps reduce the mosquito population and lessens your family’s exposure to itchy bites and potentially harmful diseases. With American Pest Solutions mosquito control services, this will be the best spring ever!
