How to prepare for someone to spray for mosquitoes in your yard

Nobody enjoys having mosquitoes in their yard. It makes it difficult to have friends over for an evening in the backyard, and an afternoon with the family can be a dreaded experience. Fortunately, you can change all that when you spray for mosquitoes in your yard.

You can have a member of our team at Andora come out and spray for mosquitoes to help remove these pests from your yard. However, it’s important that you take a few steps beforehand to ensure the treatment is most effective. We have some tips to help you get started that should make it easier for you to have your yard ready for someone to spray.

Clean up

Mosquitoes love standing water because it’s where they lay their eggs. Trash and debris of all kinds are ideal places for water to sit in your yard and provide a place for mosquitoes to breed. Something that’s important to consider when cleaning your yard is that mosquitoes are tiny, so it doesn’t take very much water at all to provide them with ample water to lay eggs. For example, water in the lid of a plastic soda bottle lid is plenty of space to spawn the next generation of pests in your yard. It’s essential that you do a thorough clean-up of your yard to ensure none of these mosquito breeding grounds are around after the spray.

Eliminate standing water

in addition to cleaning up your yard of the extra debris, make an effort to eliminate standing water. Even items in the yard that can be considered fixtures like a bucket, planter, toys, wheelbarrow, or other lawn equipment should be dried to prevent standing water. Consider that these areas might be the most significant problems in your yard and where mosquitoes are coming from. New mosquitoes can’t come back and lay more eggs if there’s no water for them to lay them in.
