Guide To Minimizing Mosquito Exposure
There are very few things in life that everyone collectively dislikes, but mosquitoes come pretty close. Whether you are a judge, a criminal, a soldier, or the average 9-5 employee, chances are, on some level, you cannot stand mosquitoes.
Granted there are some people who have never had to deal with mosquitoes and thus do not hold an opinion about them, but this article is not for them. This article is to help you get unwanted mosquitoes off of your property.
What Attracts Mosquitoes To Properties?
Have you ever wondered what attracts mosquitoes to properties? You may not like the answer. The truth is, aside from flowering plants, anything that has blood attracts mosquitoes. Now there are some other minor factors such as heat, the color of your clothing, your body type, and lactic acid, but nothing attracts them as much as the prospect of a good blood meal. This means that whenever you go outside, whenever an animal wonders across your property, or really when anything containing blood moves about, mosquitoes will take notice.
Tips To Minimize Mosquito Exposure
There are some ways you can reduce your exposure to mosquitoes this summer. Here is our list of tips and tricks to do just that.
