With summer comes hordes of mosquitoes, and these little pests aren’t just pesky, they can be downright dangerous as well. At Bugout, we want to help you to get control over the mosquito population plaguing your property, and save you from all of those itchy and sometimes dangerous bites. The first thing to remember is that mosquitoes are attracted to water, and controlling your moisture problem is also key to controlling your mosquito problem as well.

The obvious culprits are untreated pools and baby pools, but the things you may not think of are puddles that accumulate around your land, gutters that need to be cleaned, or piles of leaves or debris that could be holding moisture you’re not apt to see. In instances of mosquitoes, we find that it’s typically the lesser known or lesser thought of moisture problems that most often lead to mosquito populations booming in an area. Continue reading
