Mosquito-Proofing Your Home: Tips and TricksThere are few things more unpleasant than mosquito bites. Unfortunately, Florida residents are all too familiar with mosquito infestations and their itchy stings. However, the threat of a mosquito is not limited to the outdoors.

If you have been waking up with bug bites on your body and don’t know where they are coming from, then you may have mosquitoes inside your home. While it may sound unlikely, mosquitoes can breed in any warm areas containing stagnant water. If nuisance mosquitoes are invading your home, try the following tips and tricks.

Mosquito Control Tips and Tricks

The best way to avoid mosquitoes is to prevent mosquitoes. Here are some mosquito control tips for mosquito-proofing your home.

  • Maintain your window screens.

The screens on your windows are one of your home’s first lines of defense against mosquitos. Examine them every now and then for holes or other damage and replace them, if necessary, to keep mosquitoes outside where they belong.

  • Wear bug repellant inside and outside.

Before protecting your home, it can be helpful to protect yourself. You may think you only need to wear bug spray when you’re going to be outside for a long period of time, but also wearing bug spray indoors can be a great way to repel mosquitos that may be buzzing around inside.

  • Remove any standing water.

Mosquitoes lay their eggs in pools of stagnant water. To prevent a large mosquito population from breeding near your home, regularly clean out your gutters, dump out rain buckets, change the water in your birdbath, flush your toilets, and run your filter on your pool. By keeping the water around your home flowing, nuisance mosquitoes won’t have a place to breed.
