Need to Get Rid of Mosquitoes on Your Property for Good? Eliminate Their Breeding Habitats!

Mosquito Authority is a trusted leader in providing professional mosquito and tick control services. It’s our mission to get rid of mosquitoes and give you and your family peace of mind while you enjoy your outdoor space. 

Mosquitoes aren’t just annoying – they can also transmit over 28 dangerous diseases, including Zika virus, West Nile virus, encephalitis, malaria, dengue fever, and more. Nearly 700 million people contract mosquito-borne illnesses each year, with 1 million succumbing to the diseases. It’s our job to prevent illnesses and deaths by effectively combating these pests from coast to coast. 

Given how adaptable mosquitoes are, store-bought repellents and bug zappers can only go so far and offer minimal relief because they don’t make much of a dent in the population. Mosquito Authority achieves far better results, stopping larvae and mosquito habitats from growing, all as part of our mosquito service guarantee. Since 2002, we’ve been helping families and businesses clear their properties of dangerous habitats.

We take a modern approach to eliminating mosquitoes that includes a proven four-step process. Our expert specialists take the time to identify your problem over the phone and then visit your home for a follow-up property inspection. We’re trained to determine where mosquitoes live during our comprehensive walk-throughs, as removing breeding habitats is crucial to eliminating your problem for good.

Our experts will develop a customized solution to meet your needs based on factors like the size of your property, your region, the weather, and more. We’ll provide the best course of action for your family, pets, and guests, whether you need a one-time treatment or prefer season-long services for maximum protection. After our consultation, we’ll choose the right treatments and expertly apply them, and you can look forward to a hassle-free experience. 

Six Ways to Eliminate Mosquito Habitats

While we’re known for our mosquito treatments, Mosquito Authority goes above and beyond to serve our customers by providing practical tips they can use to stop these pests. After all, we know the best way to kill mosquitoes, and we’re happy to share our knowledge with customers. 

Here are six ways that you can eliminate mosquito breeding grounds around your yard and home and stop these pests from ruining your outdoor fun:

  1. Remove Any Standing Water Around Your Yard and Home

Mosquitoes require as little as half an inch (12.7mm) of water to sustain their eggs, so it’s a good idea to ensure objects around your yard are emptied regularly, and water features are changed out often to deter mosquito breeding. 

We look for items around your property that can collect and hold standing water as part of our comprehensive process. Some of the common objects that we look for include:

  • Tire swings
  • Wheelbarrows
  • Birdbaths
  • Buckets
  • Planters
  • Flower pots
  • Trash containers and their lids
  • Children’s toys
  • Kiddie pools
  1. Clean Up Any Clutter in Your Yard

If you plan on spending a lot of time in your yard this summer, you’ll want to ensure that no trash is left behind in your outdoor spaces. Even the smallest trash items (think bottle caps and cans) can become breeding grounds for mosquitoes.  

This also goes for yard clutter. Fallen leaves, bushes, trees, and shrubs can become prime mosquito habitats, and by removing these items, you can discourage them from taking up residence in your yard.

  1. Check Gutters Regularly for Clogging

Clogged gutters result in a buildup of stagnant water and become a hotspot for mosquito breeding. Regularly checking your gutters and removing leaf litter will ensure water can move freely and discourage mosquito habitats.  

  1. Change the Water in Birdbaths

While birdbaths are great for attracting birds, they also attract mosquitoes when there’s a lack of activity and water becomes stagnant. To prevent an increase in mosquitoes on your property, empty and change out the water in your birdbaths at least once a week. 

  1. Remove Yard Debris

Yard debris like leaf piles, grass clipping, compost piles, and thick vegetation can make for the perfect mosquito habitat. Getting rid of yard debris near your home can help keep mosquitoes at bay.

  1. Hire a Professional

One of the best ways to keep mosquitoes away from your property is by making sure they don’t have anywhere to breed and multiply. Our mosquito control specialists take the time to inspect your property and ensure mosquito habitats are eliminated as one of the first steps in our comprehensive process.

Mosquito Authority experts are trained to seek out and eliminate all potential mosquito breeding grounds in and around your home. Once these habitats are removed, we’ll treat your property by applying one of our effective mosquito solutions, eliminating pests from your yard almost immediately. We’ll return every three weeks to keep them away and guarantee you won’t be bothered between treatments. And if you are? All you have to do is call, and we’ll come back to reassess and retreat if necessary, at no additional cost to you.
