Do Mosquitoes Really Like the Rain?
This summer has been a wet one, especially in the Midwest! We all have heard the warnings of the rain bringing in a swarm of mosquitoes. It turns out mosquitoes don’t really like rain. They love puddles!
The female mosquito lays her eggs in stagnant water, and larvae need only ½ inch of water to survive. With so much rainfall, water gathers quickly and cannot easily evaporate or soak into the ground. This means more mosquitoes!
Here are some steps you can take to prevent mosquitoes on your property after it rains:
1.) Dump out any standing water that can collect in items such as flower pots and old tires.
2.) Clear water off pool covers after it rains.
3.) Maintain your landscape: Mosquitoes can hide under trees, bushes & shrubs.
And of course you can armor up with DynaTrap. Get one now and take precaution!
