Although mosquitoes serve a purpose in the environment, they can be a major annoyance during the summer months when we want to enjoy our outdoor spaces. If mosquitoes are an issue in your own backyard, there are some steps you can take to encourage them to live elsewhere. It is important to drain standing water, including pet bowls, gutters, garbage and recycling bins, spare tires, bird baths, children's toys, and so on. This is where mosquitoes breed, so if you eliminate standing water, you'll eliminate many mosquitoes.
You can avoid many bites by staying inside around dawn and dusk, which is when mosquitoes are most active. If you must be, or choose to be, out during those times, wear light-colored, long-sleeved shirts and long pants, hats, and socks (some mosquitoes are more attracted to dark clothing and can bite through tight-fitting clothes). Mosquitoes are also thicker in shrubby areas and near standing water.
