What else can you do??

  1. TIP. Reduce standing water to eliminate mosquito threats. Check children’s sandboxes, wagons or plastic toys; downspouts, plant saucers and dog bowls. Other hot spots: gutters, A/C units and flat roofs.

  2. TOSS. Remove excess grass, leaves, firewood and clippings from yards.

  3. TURN. Turn over larger yard items that could hold water like children’s plastic toys.

  4. REMOVE TARPS. If tarps stretched over firewood piles, grills, boats or sports equipment aren’t taut, they’re holding water.

  5. TREAT. Utilize a mosquito elimination barrier treatment around the home and yard. Using a barrier treatment at home reduces the need for using DEET-containing bug spray on the body. Mosquito Squad’s eliminates up to 90 percent of the mosquitoes on a property.
