In addition, the best pest control at the Lake of the Ozarks also has some tips on how you can keep the mosquitoes from taking over your lawn this summer.

Preventing Mosquitoes
Mosquitoes can lay their eggs in water, and not much water at that. A Frisbee or even a plastic water bottle cap can hold enough water for them to breed. To avoid mosquitoes from laying their eggs, take the following steps:

  • Regularly clean your swimming pool.
  • Find and remove any standing water around your home.
  • Punch a hole in any unusable tires laying in the yard to prevent pools of water from forming inside them.
  • Dump and wipe out your bird bath every few days. The eggs can stick to the bottom of the bowl and survive in dry periods.

Controlling Mosquitoes

  • Keep grass and shrubs trimmed short.
  • Keep window and door screens in good condition.
  • If possible, wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants or even pesticide-treated clothing while outdoors.
  • Use mosquito traps, such as bug zappers
  • Plant mosquito repelling plants around your home, such as rose-scented geraniums, lemon balm and catnip.
