Humidity, warmth, and the dampness of summer bring along an annoying pest: the mosquito. The heat from the summer paired with the dampness of the recent rainfall make perfect breeding conditions for mosquitoes, as they are very attracted to warm and wet areas.
Mosquitoes are one of the most dangerous insects in the world due to a variety of diseases they can transfer, such as Malaria, Dog Heart Worm, and the West-Nile Virus.
You can try to prevent mosquitoes from breeding by removing any standing water around your home. Mosquitoes can lay about 300 eggs in even small volumes of water, so removing moisture is a key method in trying to get rid of them. There are also several repellents to keep these insects away.
