Keep your yard from becoming a breeding ground for Mosquitoes.

March 31, 2014

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.
