You may have noticed that our favorite flying and biting insects are already back. Not that mosquitoes ever totally disappear, but the official mosquito season is now underway in South Florida. Spring is in the air, and so are more mosquitoes. And mosquitoes’ smaller partner-in-crime, no-see-ums, are also making waves. Some people are under the misguided impression that living by the beach protects them from these biting insects. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Are there mosquitoes by the beach? Of course, they are. And you know how much mosquitoes love water, which is where mosquitoes love to breed.
Mosquitoes Enjoy Hanging Out at the Beach
Living near or at the beach sounds ideal. Who wouldn’t want to live a stone’s throw away from sand, sun, and ocean? So beautiful and relaxing. Plus, you get that breeze off the ocean, which some people believe keeps mosquito activity at bay. It does not. You can get mosquito bites at the beach, too. That’s because mosquitoes tend to gather wherever there’s water. Any body of water will do.
Of course, there are things you can do to help keep them from coming into your home and breeding around your property:
- Close any open doors or windows before dusk.
- Repair torn screens.
- Reduce the number of breeding sites on your property: birdbaths, clogged gutters, plastic wading/kiddie pools, pots/saucers, toys, dishes/pet water bowls, fountains, buckets, and bromeliad plants which store water in their leaves or rosettes.
- Keep your grass, shrubbery, bushes, and foliage trimmed, to keep down mosquito activity.
Another smart thing you can do to keep mosquitoes and no-see-ums off your property is to use the best mosquito misting systems – SWAT Mosquito Systems.
