Ask any Eastern NC resident from Raleigh to Wilmington what the most annoying insect is and they almost always answer with one word: “Mosquitoes!”
Griffin Exterminating and Kill-A-Bug, as a part of our residential pest control services, offers our clients premium mosquito treatments to help get rid of them. Remember time spent outside shouldn’t always require a heavy dose of bug spray and tons of citronella candles!
Common Mosquito Breeding Grounds in Eastern NC
Wherever water is allowed to stand, mosquitoes will try and breed. They really prefer to make a home in:
- Gutters – One of the biggest culprits are the gutters on your roof. Most residential property owners don’t even notice backed up, dirty gutters — and the more pine straw and debris that has collected, the more the water level will build.
- Standing Water in the Yard – Do you have a drainage problem somewhere on your property where water collects after a rain shower? In the summer, mosquitoes love to breed in these areas.
- Children’s Toys – Children love to play in the yard — and who can blame them? But make sure all their toys are brought back indoors after time spent outside. Sandboxes, kiddie pools, wagons and more can all be an issue if left outside for days on end.
- Bird Baths – Not only will the birds appreciate you cleaning and changing the water in your bird bath regularly, but potential mosquitoes will have to find another place to live, too.
