1. Get rid of all standing water. Empty anything that has water in it. Recycle any cans laying around or old tires. Clean bird bath once a week or more often. If you have a bad mosquito problem, keep all water out of bird bath until mosquitoes are under control.
Wash pet bowl daily.
2. Look for unlikely places for water. Rake piles of leaves out so they can dry. Look for holes in trees. Clean gutters on house. Cut high weeds. Check flower pots. Tarps over grills will hold water. Inspect all outdoor furniture and garden statues for water. The drier the area the less mosquitoes.
3. Put up bat houses. Bat's are low to the ground feeders and can consume large amounts of mosquitoes.
