5 Ways to Prepare Your Yard for Mosquitoes in Spring

Spring is just around the corner, which means insects are finishing their overwintering and are getting ready to awaken from hibernation or diapause. Now is a great time to start preparing your property against pests, so that you can reduce the number of mosquitoes in spring.

Taking preventative measures against pests now can help maintain mosquito control once the weather warms up. Cold weather doesn’t always kill off adult mosquitoes, and some species’ eggs can remain frozen for up to three years. As soon as the temperature rises above 50 degrees Fahrenheit (10 degrees Celsius), mosquitoes will hatch and emerge, ready to feed and breed.

Steps You Can Take to Get Your Yard Ready

Spring is just around the corner, which means insects are finishing their overwintering and are getting ready to awaken from hibernation or diapause. Now is a great time to start preparing your property against pests, so that you can reduce the number of mosquitoes in spring.

Taking preventative measures against pests now can help maintain mosquito control once the weather warms up. Cold weather doesn’t always kill off adult mosquitoes, and some species’ eggs can remain frozen for up to three years. As soon as the temperature rises above 50 degrees Fahrenheit (10 degrees Celsius), mosquitoes will hatch and emerge, ready to feed and breed.

Taking some steps ahead of your start date to prepare your yard can help us gain quick control of the mosquito population as soon as temperatures start to rise. Here are some tips Mosquito Authority recommends to get a headstart on eradicating pests from your property:

Clear Yard Clutter

Overgrown yards are like a big welcome sign for pests. By keeping your grass cut, trees and shrubs trimmed, and removing fallen leaves, you’ll eliminate some of the common habitats for mosquitoes and discourage them from residing on your property.

Eliminate Standing Water

Mosquitoes can lay eggs in as little as half an inch (12.7mm) of water. It’s a good idea to remove standing or stagnant water where possible to deter pests from making your property a breeding ground. We suggest observing objects that can collect and hold standing water, like tire swings, wheel barrels, birdbaths, buckets, planters, flower pots, and trash containers.

Prevent Soil Buildup

It’s important to keep soil from building up around your home’s foundation, as it can create a habitat for pests to live in. By moving soil away from your foundation and creating a barrier around the perimeter of your home, you can help keep insects away from your house.

Seal Your Home

Pests can get into your home from the tiniest of crevices. It’s a good idea to check your home for drafts, gaps, and other crevices where insects can get in, like window screens, window frames, doorways, attics, crawl spaces, basements, roofs, gutters, shingles, fascia, and eaves.

Mosquitoes can live for much longer if they have access to the interior of your home, so taking the time to ensure your home is sealed tight is a good way to keep them from taking up residence.
