Mosquitoes can lay eggs in any location that contains standing water.
Be sure to inspect your yard and property once every week and drain any standing water
And Don’t Forget To Check
- Plant saucers
- Uncovered boats
- Water bowls for pets
- Leaky hoses and faucets
- Rot holes in trees
The NUMBER ONE thing
you can do to prevent
Mosquitoes is to NOT
give them a place to lay
their eggs and develop.
