How to Maximize the Use of Shady Areas in Your Yard This Summer


We all look forward to the summer months and those entertaining outdoor activities. Of course, the summer also comes with its challenges, including avoiding some of the sun’s direct heat and not getting eaten alive by biting insects. Let’s explore how to maximize the use of shady areas in your yard this summer.

Use a Mosquito Misting System

The first things that usually come to mind when people think of shade are trees, nature’s natural source of shade. While trees can provide a great source of shade, if you don’t already have mature trees in your yard, you could be waiting for years before newly planted trees grow large enough to help as a shade provider. Another thing to consider is those nasty mosquitoes and other biting insects that show up at summer events uninvited, like insectoid wedding crashers. Most biting insects reproduce and thrive in those shady outdoor areas. If trees or natural shrubbery are the foundation of your shady strategy, you should also consider the use of a mosquito misting system to combat those biting insects that will make their presence painfully felt, like it or not.

Pest control professionals and health agency experts agree that mosquito misting systems are the best way to control mosquito populations and provide the best protection against biting insects of all types.  Mosquito systems can be activated from inside your home, allowing the homeowner to begin outdoor misting without being bitten by the insects. Not only do these systems provide excellent protection against being bitten by the insects, but in effect, this helps shield you against the diseases that are spread by these insects, such as Zika and the West Nile virus.

Beyond trees, other ideas to increase the shady area in the yard include the use structures, such as gazebos and umbrellas. Of course, neither of these solutions do much to protect you from no-see-ums or other biting insects. Short of screening in your entire yard, these flying insects will show up to your party. Once again, the use of home mosquito control systems may help. These systems are set up in strategic areas throughout the yard and put out a mist of insecticide intended to kill the no-see-ums and other insects, including flies and spiders. Customers who have installed mosquito misting systems agree that these systems provide excellent protection from mosquitoes and other insects.
