These little pests can many different viruses and bacteria, which, some of which can be deadly to humans. Even if you are not infected by a mosquito bite, the itchy, red bump that is left behind is not something that anyone enjoys.

Here at Genie Pest Control, we understand mosquitoes can be a pesky insect for Omaha homeowners. And, if you are unlucky enough to have an infestation, things can escalate very quickly from a mildly irritating problem to a severe issue. Should you suspect that you have a mosquito infestation on your property, it’s essential to schedule our mosquito removal services as soon as possible to get the problem under control. However, prevention is better than cure, and with the following simple tips, you can keep mosquitos from ruining your summer.

Remove Sources Of Standing Water

Mosquitos need water to reproduce, and once their legs are laid, it can take as little as just four days for them to develop into adults. This makes sources of standing water on your property a hotbed for mosquito activity. It is vital that you take the time to remove any standing water that you might have on your property to discourage mosquitos from reproducing. Check around your outdoor spaces for anywhere that water can accumulate, such as buckets, blocked gutters, plant pots, and other containers.

Use Window And Door Screens

If you have window and door bug screens installed, make sure that you use them to keep mosquitos out of your home. Be sure to check your screens for tears or other damage and take the time to repair them properly before the summer, and the mosquitos, arrive. For homeowners who do not have screens installed, now is a good time to consider having them fitted. Our residential insect removal technicians recommend that homeowners use screens on all open windows and doors during the summer. The cross breeze will keep your home nice and cool when the weather gets warmer, and the screens will keep those pesky mosquitos out.

Utilize Your Fans

Turning on your fans is a great way to keep mosquitos away from you and your home. Mosquitos find it very difficult to fly against a strong air current, so the air that your fan blows around will push them away and make it more difficult for mosquitos to get close to you. If you are sitting outside and have outdoor fans, they will work just as effectively, or bring some standing fans outside to where you are going to be sitting. Fans also help to move around the CO2 that we breathe out, making it more difficult for a mosquito to locate you, as tracing the CO2 is one of the primary methods mosquitos use to find food.

Stay Covered, Use Mosquito Repellent
