Nothing takes the fun out of an evening like a bunch of bloodthirsty mosquitoes. You can keep mosquito population under control by limiting their habitat on your property.
Install mosquito netting/screen on all windows to prevent mosquitoes from entering the house.
Remove stagnant water - unused tyres, empty cans and bottles to prevent them from becoming breeding grounds for Aedes mosquitoes.
Clean and discard - any dried leaves that may clog the roof gutters once a week to prevent water stagnation.
Cover all water containers - to prevent mosquitoes from breeding.
Change water - in the vases, pot bases and water containers and add larvicide at least once a month to prevent mosquitoes from breeding.
Clean and clear drains - around the house on weekly basis to prevent it from clogging.
Keep swimming pool clean - and chlorinated every month even when not in use.
It is bad enough when you have mosquitoes in your garden, which prevent you from going outdoors. It seems almost worse if mosquitoes have managed to fly inside your home and make you feel like your home has been invaded.
