As the temperatures in Winder, Georgia continue to rise, so do the mosquito count. These tried and true mosquito-fighting techniques will help rid you of mosquitos and help you enjoy the outdoors again.
Buy bug spray and use it.
Do not spray it on your clothes and do not slather it on your skin. Just apply lightly. What kind to buy? The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends brands with Deet or Picaridin. Reapply according to the instructions.
Remove standing water.
Mosquitoes live to reproduce, but they have to have standing water to lay their eggs. If you have stagnant water in your backyard, you might as well buy towels and curtains for your mosquito nursery. Tires, toys, gutters, pet dishes, plant saucers, bird baths, leaky outdoor faucets, even air-conditioning drains all are likely spots for mosquito larvae. Survey your property frequently. Empty any items that hold water.
Light clothes will help!
Wear light-colored clothing, preferably pants and shirts with long sleeves.
