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 - 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.
