What Attracts Mosquitoes To Your Yard?
Mosquitoes are attracted to areas with warm, moist climates. This makes the mosquito population in Georgia, and specifically Alpharetta, active all year long. Their bites can itch for days and may even transmit diseases, such as Zika virus, according to the CDC. With this in mind, mosquitoes are a pest you certainly want to eliminate before getting out of hand. Read below to find out what attract mosquitoes to your yard in the first place.
- Standing Water – Water is a necessary component for mosquito eggs to hatch into larvae. Mosquitoes are naturally drawn to these areas for reproductive purposes. Standing water can be found in tires, flower pots, grill covers, gutters, trash cans, lids, and more. Eliminating sources of standing water will greatly minimize the chances of mosquitoes laying eggs in your yard.
- Tall Grass – Areas with lush grass, bushes, weeds, and even grass clippings, provide protection for mosquitoes from the sun, wind, and other elements. Keeping your yard tidy and removing debris will help deter mosquitoes from making an appearance.
The In2Care® Mosquito Control Trap
The In2Care® Mosquito Trap is not harmful to the environment or pets.
How Does the In2Care® Mosquito Trap work?
The In2Care® Mosquito Trap is made of durable recycled polypropylene components, and consists of a lid, central tube, click-on interface and reservoir. Inside the trap is a floater that moves along the central tube with the water level. This floater serves as a resting/landing site for mosquitoes. Female mosquitoes are attracted to the trap by adding a tablet with attractive odors to the water. When a female mosquito lands on the floater, she becomes contaminated with an active ingredient.
How The Trap Kills and Prevents Mosquitoes
The In2Care® Mosquito Trap provides an attractive breeding site for mosquitoes to lay their eggs. When a mosquito enters the trap, she lands near the water on the floater that is covered with two active ingredients. The first is a growth regulator that kills the mosquito larvae in the trap and surrounding breeding sites. The second active ingredient waekens the mosquito, prevents virus development, and kills the pest before they are able to transmit diseases.
