Nothing can ruin an outdoor gathering like mosquitoes and midges can. These pests are irritating, and they leave bites that can be even more irritating. If you're planning on spending any time in your backyard this summer, the thought of how to eliminate those pests has probably come across your mind. The truth is they can't be eliminated. There is no way to keep all the mosquitoes and midges out of your yard, but you can reduce them. In fact, if more of us work together, we can reduce them quite a bit.
You know that this time of year is when we turn our attention to the first harvest of late summer and begin to reap the benefits of our hard spring and summer’s work. It’s always a rewarding experience to pick those first ‘sprouts’ of vegetables and steam up the green beans, sauté the peppers and scallions, or boil up some beets. There’s nothing like the taste of those fresh from the garden sprouts on a balmy late summer evening! Here in Colorado, however, our vegetables are not the only thing that has sprouted this year.
Spending time outdoors and enjoying the sun is something that many people and families living in Colorado like to do; whether that means gardening or hosting BBQ’s at home, hiking, swimming at the lake, or attending outdoor concerts. Whatever you choose Colorado provides some excellent summer weather and the perfect background to do it in! At EnviorPest we want to provide you with some easy tips to help make sure that your summer plans are not de-railed by pesky summer pests like mosquitoes, flies, ticks, stinging insects, and ants.
The first step toward stopping mosquito bites is to develop a better understanding of the nature and habits of the mosquito. We wait all winter and endure cool springtime just to enter into those warm summer months with fun outdoor activities. However, the incessant buzzing and biting mosquitoes can put a real damper on an otherwise enjoyable evening outdoors.
