Next week we will recap and update the month that was July, but this week it’s all about mosquitoes. Our summer hasn’t been too rainy, so you shouldn’t have much standing water to get rid of. If your noticing more than usual mosquito activity in and around your home, it’s time to walk the property and find any standing water. Even a spoonful can be enough for mosquitoes to lay eggs. Bonus tip: LOOK UP, yes, you may have standing water in your gutters. A leafy gutter is a bad gutter so get the leaves out, rinse it out and then the sun can dry it out. I visited a local garden center and here is a short list of plants that mosquitoes do not like: Lavender, Lemon Grass, Lemon Balm, Citronella, Basil, and Marigolds. Put some of these plants around the doors to your home and that should reduce the likelihood that you will have a hitchhiking mosquito when you come into your home.
