Avoid bites with mosquito repellent and control products

Mosquitoes are not just annoying insects, buzzing around the family barbecue in the early evening.

You can exhibit some mosquito control in your yard without applying a chemical mosquito repellent or buying a fancy mosquito control device. Make sure there are no standing water sources in your yard. This includes plastic swimming pools , bird baths and decorative fountains . If you have any of these items in your yard, change the water frequently — at least once a week. Standing water can also be found in gutters, eaves troughs or items left outside.

Most mosquito control traps target the adults in the population. For instance, commercially available pheromone-based mosquito control devices are typically nontoxic and safe around children and animals. There are also propane-burning devices that emit carbon dioxide and a chemical attractant to draw in adult mosquitoes and capture them in a container, where they dehydrate and die.

A similar device doesn't use the propane, but does use the carbon dioxide, sugary scents and the pheromone attractant to collect females. These devices are available in cordless, rechargeable versions, but, in genera...
