Abandoned homes and home foreclosures really need to watch for extra breeding of mosquitoes in the area. Standing water is how mosquitoes breed, water left untended will result in an explosion in the mosquito population, bringing with them, the West Nile Virus.
One way to help control the mosquitoes from breeding is to drop in larvicide bricks or grains into the abandoned pools, hot tubs and fish ponds.
Mosquitoes can lay eggs in any standing water, an open trash barrel, empty planting pots, bird feeders anything water can collect in and left is just what those nasty mosquitoes will be looking for, and it happens quickly!
So let’s all do our part, watch for standing waters in your area, we want to eliminate the mosquito population, not increase it!
