Hungry and looking for a meal, mosquitoes can be more than an annoyance. They can transmit West Nile and Zika viruses, as well as Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE).

Laying their eggs in standing water, mosquitoes take advantage of such places as birdbaths and puddles to breed. It should be noted that mosquitoes hatch in just 24 to 48 hours; the sooner you address the problem, the better.
Tips to control mosquitoes
- Eliminate standing water in buckets, old tires, plastic covers, toys or other containers; fill puddles with dirt.
- Keep screens for windows and doors in good working condition
- Keep swimming pool water treated and circulating
- Use mosquito repellants containing DEET or picaridin
Mosquitoes will bite all day long but they are most active at dawn and dusk. Place a barrier between you and hungry mosquitoes with long sleeves and closed shoes during those times of peak mosquito activity and when working in the yard.
