I’m Being Eaten Alive by Mosquitoes!

“Yikes, I can hardly sit outside without getting eaten alive by mosquitos!”

Sound familiar?

If you’ve ever used this line, there may be things you are doing that are attracting insects to your lovely outdoor space.

Summer is mosquito breeding season, and whether you are aware of it or not, you might be setting up ideal mosquito breeding grounds right in your own backyard.

Yard Trash Can Attract Mosquitoes

It only takes a small amount of stagnant water for a female mosquito to lay her eggs, and with closer investigation, you can probably find lots of hidden places that a mosquito might find inviting:

  • Planters and pots
  • Kids playset and toys
  • Kiddie pools
  • Old tires
  • Tarps and covers
  • Bottles and cups
  • Cans and buckets
  • Piles of lumber or yard debris
  • Discarded items or trash
  • Clogged gutters
  • Drainage pipes
  • Bird baths
  • Puddling areas

Take a few minutes to walk your yard, and think like a mosquito, looking for places that might hold even the smallest amount of water. Then eliminate those items. Toss out trash, tent tarps and covers so that rain won’t collect on them, and remove lumber and yard debris that might be piled in the corners of your yard. Turn over items that can trap water, or remove them from the yard entirely.
