Check around your yard and home for places where water collects, such as water-holding containers, house A.C. drains, and ornamental ponds – you may be raising mosquitoes! But there are positive steps homeowners can take to reduce this menace.
Some of these include getting rid of old tires, tin cans, bottles, jars, buckets, drums and other containers or keep them emptied. Empty your small toddler-size wading pool weekly and store it indoors when not in use. Make sure your backyard swimming pool is properly cared for while on vacation.
