Why your outdoor space is attracting mosquito

Mosquitos are attracted to carbon dioxide, warmth, and the smell of their host’s skin. Once a female has extracted blood from her host, she needs stagnant fresh water to lay her eggs. Your yard might be a breeding ground for mosquitos, if you have places where water sits still for up to four days including:   

  • Empty cans, buckets, trashcans, flowerpots and other containers 
  • Food or water dishes for pets 
  • Clogged gutters, storm drains, or rain basins
  • Unattended ponds, birdbaths, plastic pools, or other ornamental water features
