Most of the people across the United States are concerned about controlling pest infestation problems that they encounter in their homes. However, in the summer months, which tend to be warmer, mosquitoes are responsible for bringing misery to those trying to enjoy the great outdoors. Mosquitoes are commonly found at picnic spots, backyard barbecues and other outdoor locations.

Enjoy the summer season, with these tips for keeping insects away from your home:

  1. Remove any standing water. Objects that have a tendency to catch rainwater, such as plastic containers, pot holes and empty holes should be removed as well.
  2. The water present in the water garden and birdbath should be replaced at frequently.
  3. The wheelbarrows that are not in use should be turned upside down.
  4. Make sure that boats are covered with tarps.
  5. The clogged gutters should be kept clean at all times and rainwater should never accumulate around them.
  6. In the outdoor garbage can, make drainage holes for water to drain.
