Remove Stagnant Water
Stagnant water is a hotspot for mosquitoes. Mosquitoes will create breeding grounds wherever they can find them, and they can breed in areas of almost any size! Check obvious areas such as potted plants, play pools, toys, and anywhere else that water could collect, especially after a seasonal downpour. You’ll also want to check areas such as your gutters and roof, as water can sometimes pool and sit stagnant for months on end.
If this sounds like too much trouble for your busy schedule, you’re not alone! We know that mosquito control can become a serious chore for home and business owners alike, and that’s why we always recommend In2Care for anyone looking for an easy and effortless way to stop mosquitoes at their source.

Maintain Your Lawn and Landscape
Mosquitoes tend to spend the day in cool, high-humidity areas that allow them to escape from the heat of the sun. Your grass and broader landscape may be providing them with a refuge if it’s overgrown and untrimmed, so be sure that you’re clearing weeds and mowing your lawn regularly during the warmer months of the year. If you cannot perform these tasks on your own, or if your schedule simply doesn’t allow you to spend a significant amount of time on your lawn each week, then you may want to consider hiring a professional landscaping company.
Invest in Screens
The temperatures are heating up in Spring and Katy, and almost all of the residents in these areas will be closing their windows and relying on their air conditioners for comfort. However, some homeowners still choose to open their doors and windows in the early morning and in the evening, and these homeowners should be particularly careful about letting mosquitoes into their homes.
Mosquitoes have been known to thrive indoors, so be sure to invest in quality screens if you plan to leave your windows open during the day. In addition to keeping out mosquitoes, you’ll also be keeping out wasps, moths, and other unwanted visitors!
