With our beautiful Florida weather, mosquitoes can dampen your enjoyment of your outdoor living space. With a higher than normal mosquito population predicted, it is important that you protect your family from this annoying pest. Mosquitos are a nuisance, but they can also spread diseases like dengue fever, malaria, West Nile Virus, and the Zika Virus. Luckily, there are ways to protect yourself and your family this summer.
Remove Standing Water
Mosquitos require warm, stable temperatures and standing water. When it rains, water can collect in buckets, playground equipment and various other things you may have around your home. It is best to remove standing water around your home.
Candles and Bug Spray
Burning citronella candles may also be a good way to keep mosquitos away from your patio area. Be sure to use this method in addition to bug spray, as it is less effective on its own. It’s recommended to use a bug spray with DEET (diethyltoluamide).
