Dealing With Mosquitos

June 11, 2020

Summer time is here and you know what that means.  Yep, pool parties and lounging around in the sun.  Well, maybe not, but that does sound fun.  No, what I am talking about are our favorite neighborhood guests the mosquitoes are moving in.  And with them moving in, you know what that means.  Yep, mosquito treatment oklahoma city.

Don’t drink beer

When it comes to summer and lounging around one thing that we will like to do is drink beer and other alcoholic beverages.  Well, the adults do anyways.  When we drink beer we are changing our scent to something that is more positive for mosquitos.  So, if you are someone who is prone to these pests loving on you, don’t drink beer, at least not outside.

Wear light clothing

Mosquitos love dark clothing.  Black is their favorite.  One way that you can avoid being attacked is to wear light colored clothes.  These colors can’t be seen or are hard to be seen by these flying pests.  As a result you can avoid them by changing what it is you wear.

Remove standing water

Water is where these pests like to lay their eggs and make their homes.  If you have standing water from a storm or if your yard is naturally filled with water, you will want to do something about it.  Also, if you live near a pond, lake or other small body of water you will want to avoid that area as much as possible during the summer.

Know when they are most active

You want to learn when these bugs are most active in your area.  When they are most active you will want to avoid that area as much as possible.  If you need to be outside, consider burning torches or have candles going that will send out a scent.  This scent will drive the mosquitoes away leaving you free to enjoy your summer fun.
