If there are three things that nature plagues Houston with it is hurricanes, humidity, and mosquitos!
If you are a fellow Houstonian, chances are you may be a victim of all three. Unfortunately, we cannot control the weather, however, anybody can manage their environment to prevent pesky mosquitos from thriving and flying rampant.
We can help you do so and just in time for the spring season.
Did you know?
Houston is one of the worst cities for being hit the hardest with mosquitos. It ranked No.7 last year according to the Houston Business Journal.
It may seem like nothing new because we have all had our fair share of experience when fighting off these pesky mosquitos. However, mosquitoes are not what should trouble you anymore, it is the diseases they carry.
Sadly, the number of people getting mosquito-borne infections is rising, specifically 20% more in Texas and surrounding areas.
That is why it is imperative that you educate yourself on mosquito control and what you can do to prevent them.
Tips and tricks to prevent mosquitos
According to the National Pesticide Information Center (NPIC), removing standing water gets rid of mosquito eggs and reduces breeding sites.
When eliminating mosquitoes, it is best to keep grass and shrubs trimmed short, which prevent an area for mosquitoes to rest. You may also want to make sure you are equipped with an EPA-registered mosquito repellent.
Keep windows and doors screens in working order. Moreover, as always, cover exposed skin with long sleeves and pants to keep mosquitos from reaching your skin.
