Mosquitos will lay their eggs in standing water, and the incubation period is very short. This short incubation period makes it crucial to keep your property and surrounding areas around your home clear of standing water. Common places where water can accumulate is on tarps or grill covers as well as around plates which hold potted plants. Making sure your home and property are not a perfect place for Mosquitos to lay their eggs is the first step in handling any infestation.
Repelling mosquitos involves using preventative measures such as bug sprays containing DEET and citronella candles. These include deterrents which can at times help a mosquito problem be not overwhelming. Still, if you find your home and property containing a high level of mosquito activity, you will want to contact one of our Lubbock pest control specialists.
