Mosquitoes are an all too familiar part of summer. They are not only annoying, but they present a potential health risk as carriers of disease. Eliminating mosquito habitats around your home can go a long way to reduce the mosquito population. Mosquitoes require standing water for their young to hatch and develop, only a few tablespoons of water is all it takes. Once eggs are laid, a new generation of mosquitoes can hatch, grow and emerge from the water as adults in as little as one week.
