Preventing a Spring Valley Mosquito Problem
As they say "an ounce of prevention is worth a ton of cure".
This is especially true if you live in Spring Valley and have a mosquito problem.
Your first step to avoid a mosquito infestation is to eradicate their breeding sites.
Start with a tour around your home and yard. If you eradicate their breeding sites, you can prevent a Spring Valley mosquito infestation.
Standing water is prime mosquito breeding habitat, so look for places where water collects and can’t evaporate. Improperly installed or clogged gutters and downspouts are ideal situations for female mosquitoes to lay eggs. So are birdbaths, outdoor plant pot saucers, pet dishes and wading pools. If you have a non-aerated pond or ornamental water feature in your garden, you need to be especially alert.
