Tips to help you keep mosquitos at bay:
- Remove standing water: Mosquitoes breed in stagnant water, so eliminate any standing water around your property. This includes emptying out kiddie pools, flower pots, bird baths, and any other containers that may hold water.
- Trim your landscaping: Mosquitoes love to hide in tall grass and dense foliage. Keep your lawn mowed and your bushes trimmed to reduce their hiding spots.
- Use mosquito repellent: Apply a mosquito repellent containing DEET, picaridin, or oil of lemon eucalyptus to your skin when you're spending time outdoors. You can also wear long-sleeved shirts and pants to provide extra protection.
- Install screens: Make sure all of your windows and doors have screens to keep mosquitoes out of your home.
- Consider professional pest control: If you're still having trouble with mosquitoes despite taking these steps, consider hiring a professional pest control company. They can use specialized products and techniques to effectively control the mosquito population around your home.

Mosquito Life Cycle
The mosquito goes through four separate and distinct stages of its life cycle: Egg, Larva, Pupa, and Adult.
- Egg: Eggs are laid one at a time and are attached together to form rafts. These rafts can contain up to 200 eggs and float on the surface of the water. Most eggs hatch into larvae within 48 hours; others might withstand subzero winters before hatching.
- Larva: Most larvae hang upside down on the surface of the water and have tubes for breathing and attach to plants to obtain their air supply. Larvae shed (molt) their skins four times, growing larger after each molt.
- Pupa: The pupae are mobile responding to light changes and moving their tails towards the bottom but this is the resting and non-feeding stage of development. When development is complete, the pupal skin splits and the adult mosquito emerges.
- Adult: The adult rests on the surface of the water for a short time to allow its body parts to harden. Then the adult crawls out of the water to prepare its wings and allow them to dry properly before they can fly. Blood feeding and mating do not occur for a couple of days after the adults emerge. Female mosquitos will live up to weeks while the males will die shortly after they mate.
