The Never-Ending Fight Against Mosquitoes In Lewisville

Mosquitoes are a nearly continual issue here in Lewisville, Texas. They come into our yards to ruin graduation parties, receptions, family reunions, birthday celebrations, as well as life's everyday events, such as pool parties, cookouts, playdates and much more. When they come in to ruin our fun, they don't just leave itchy bites on us, they have the potential to spread dangerous pathogens. This is why mosquito control is so important. All residents of Lewisville, Texas should take steps to reduce mosquito activity. The first step to reducing mosquitoes is understanding what lures them into your yard.

What Lures Mosquitoes Into Your Yard?

Moisture — Some mosquito species breed in stagnant pools of water and some bread on damp vegetation. A female mosquito can lay 100 eggs at a time and she can produce a batch of mosquitoes in a half a cup of water sitting on your deck. Controlling moisture and removing containers can have a big impact on mosquito populations because most of the mosquitoes that bite you in your yard are mosquitoes that hatched in your yard. Here are some tips for controlling moisture:

  • Make sure your gutters are clear and in good working condition.
  • Alter conditions that allow puddles to form in your yard, such as compacted ground.
  • Fill in troughs and holes.
  • Fix leaky spigots and hoses.
  • Trim bushes to allow for good airflow in your landscaping. This will help the topsoil to dry after watering and after it rains.
  • Trim tree branches to allow more light into areas that have dense shade.
  • Rake leaves up to prevent puddles from forming on leaf stacks as they compress.

Here are some examples of containers in your yard:

  • Toys left scattered around the yard
  • Tarp covers
  • Hot tub covers
  • Bird baths
  • An overturned trash can lid
  • A kiddie pool
  • Buckets, cups, bowls, and dishes
  • An old car or truck parked in the backyard
  • Construction material

Food — You may immediately think that we're talking about blood. But, while your blood can be food for female mosquitoes, both male and female mosquitoes don't live on blood. It is not their primary source of sustenance. What do they feed on? Mosquitoes feed on the nectar from flowers and the plant sap from plants. The more flowers and plants you have around your home, the more mosquitoes you're going to attract. Removing unwanted vegetation from your yard can help reduce mosquitoes.
