Mosquito season is on us

Female mosquitoes need water to lay their eggs in. They don't like clean water or chlorinated water though, they prefer water that has been standing.

Once they have somewhere to lay their eggs, the females go into breeding mode and stock up on blood for energy. That is when they will bite you to extract blood. Unfortunately what they leave you with is a dose of their anticoagulant that causes swelling and irritation.

If you want eliminate mosquitoes from your garden, patio or balcony, then you need to make sure there are no pools of water they could use to breed in.
