2. Remove Standing Water from your Yard
Mosquitoes absolutely adore standing water! In fact mosquitoes don't need much standing water to lay their eggs. Mosquitoes can even lay their eggs in as little as a bottle cap full of water. Here at Buzz Kill Mosquito Solutions, we can help you to identify items that might be contributing to mosquitoes in your yard.
3. Mow your Lawn
Keeping your grass short will reduce the number of ticks, bees, mosquitoes, and other bothersome insects you may see swarming around your guests. We suggest that you complete this task the day before your BBQ so that the grass is at its shortest and any allergens stirred up by the mowing process have a chance to die down.
4. Move and Cover Trash Cans
When your guests begin to place unfinished food fragments in your outdoor trash cans, these items can attract flies, bees, and other annoying creatures to the area. It’s recommended that you keep trash can lids tightly in place or place trash receptacles in an area away from where people are gathered.
