NPMA offers these tips to protect homeowners from mosquitoes

  • Eliminate sources of stagnant water including birdbaths, “kiddie” pools, swimming pool covers, barrels, and other objects that collect water.
  • Add a fountain or drip system to birdbaths and ponds on your property to keep water fresh.
  • Keep windows and doors properly screened.
  • Be alert when outdoors during dawn and dusk hours, when mosquito activity peaks.
  • Avoid wearing loose-fitting clothing, open-toe shoes and sweet-smelling perfumes or colognes when outdoors.
  • Plan ahead for spending time outdoors and wear mosquito repellant with DEET.
  • If you have a mosquito infestation on your property, call a pest professional for additional advice and treatment.
