With spring upon us, you’ve probably already started to notice the return of mosquitoes
to your Lewisville yard. Mosquitoes tend to disappear in the colder winter months, but now that they’ve returned, they’ll remain all spring and summer, ready to ruin every backyard event you have planned. The only way to avoid this fate is to do something about them.
Why You Don’t Want Mosquitoes Around Your Lewisville Yard
We all know that mosquitoes are annoying. They buzz in your ear, swarm around your body, and leave itchy welts all over your skin. That alone is enough to want to eliminate them from your Lewisville property
, but it’s not the most important reason to get rid of them.
Mosquitoes are also quite dangerous. In fact, worldwide they’re the most deadly animal alive. Thankfully that’s not the case here in the US, but they can still cause many harmful and potentially fatal illnesses in America.
Zika Virus doesn’t typically do a lot of harm to the adults who contract it, but it can cause serious birth defects in unborn babies. West Nile Virus is the most common mosquito-borne disease in the US. While the majority of people who contract it don’t have any symptoms, it can cause fevers, headaches, muscle weakness, disorientation, and more. Mosquitoes also spread various forms of encephalitis, as well as dengue fever, yellow fever, and more.
How to Eliminate Mosquitoes From Your Lewisville Yard
Mosquitoes need water in order to breed. The best do-it-yourself form of mosquito prevention is to eliminate all areas of standing water and excess moisture around your property. Ensuring your home and lawn have proper drainage, regularly cleaning out your gutters, refilling pet water bowls daily, and changing bird bath water at least once a week will all help reduce the number of mosquitoes on your property by limiting their ability to breed.
The most effective way to eliminate mosquitoes however, is by getting your lawn professionally treated.
