San Antonio Movers Help You Keep Mosquitoes at Bay

Summer is in full swing and mosquitoes are everywhere. For some these tiny insects can really be a bother, especially if you spend a lot of time in your backyard. The local San Antonio movers can help you get control of the situation, so you can get back to enjoying the outdoors. First you need to make sure that you don't have a lot of still water laying around. mosquitoes don't need much water to breed, so you need to eliminate standing water. If you have plants on your patio, make sure your plant saucers don't contain water because all mosquitoes need is about half-inch of water to reproduce. The San Antonio movers remind learned that mosquitoes only need eight to ten days for their eggs to turn into an adult. Make sure to tip any container you have outside that has stagnant water, even dog bowls and birdbaths. If you need to fill some up, do so with fresh water.

The All My Sons of San Antonio remind you t get rid of unnecessary clutter because water can accumulate in tiny crevices as well. Old tires, bicycles (because water can add up in its basket), random buckets, even decorative bowls on some of your outdoor furniture. You should also check your gutters, make sure water is draining freely. Manicuring your lawn regularly helps keep mosquitoes away too because tall trees and grass provide shade for these tiny insects. Even leaves can create a habitat for them, because water can accumulate there as well. If you have a pool, big or small, make sure you cover it. If it's a wadding pool, you can just cover it if you don't want to throw the water out. If you have fish ponds or rain barrels, use mosquito dunks to kill their larvae. The local San Antonio moving specialists learned all you have to do is drop the dunk into the water and it will release a toxin that will kill the mosquito larvae. It won't harm fish, birds or any other animals. It's not expensive either and will kill larvae for about a month in 100 square feet of stagnant water.

If you tarps around that cover firewood, speedboat, a grill or other large items, the All My Sons of San Antonio remind you to pull it tightly so that water doesn't fold in. You can also spray your grass, shrubs and landscaped areas with lawn insect repellant which costs about $30 or purchase granules that you can apply to the lawn with a fertilizer spreader. There won't be any fumes or chemicals released so it's not harmful. This will help the mosquito situation for about three weeks.
