A dangerous pest
Mosquitoes are an aggravating and deadly pest. Yes, we did say deadly. Next to every other animal and insect on the planet, the mosquito has inadvertently killed more people than anything else simply because of the diseases it has passed from human to human for thousands of years. According to WHO, the mosquito bite results in more than 1 million deaths worldwide each year due to the deadly diseases it spreads. Though most of these deaths are in third world countries, the united states does see its fair share of dangerous illnesses caused by mosquito bites. Common mosquito borne diseases are malaria, West Nile virus, chikungunya, dengue, several types of encephalitis and most recently in the news, the Zika virus. These diseases can have drastic consequences on your health and by controlling the mosquito population around your home, you can minimize your chances of contracting any of these diseases.

How to keep mosquitoes away
There is one thing mosquitoes need more than anything—water. They are water loving insects primarily because this is where they lay their eggs. Female mosquitoes drink blood and use the blood protein to develop the eggs, thus females are the only mosquitoes that bite. She can then lay up to 300 eggs at a time, which are deposited in clusters that float on top of the water. It does not need to be much water, an inch at the very least. When they hatch, they transform from larvae to pupae to adult in only two weeks time. As you can see, the life cycle of a mosquito is very fast and if you yard has standing water anywhere, you could be perpetuating the continued cycle of these nasty, blood sucking insects. Removing all standing water and puddles of water, weather in buckets, tarps, drainage areas or more will reduce their breeding grounds.
