Don’t let mosquitoes take over your rain barrel!

Rain barrels are beneficial; however it comes with the potential for a mosquito breeding ground.

When collecting rain water in a barrel system it can sit stagnant for days before you collect enough to use. These conditions are perfect for mosquitoes to lay their eggs in.

For covered barrels, make sure the connection from the downspout to the barrel is well-sealed. Mosquitoes often lay eggs in water-soaked leaf debris. Clean roof gutters regularly to prevent the eggs from entering the barrel.

Why are there so many mosquitos in my yard? They are eating me alive! What can I do to help control the mosquito population?

Here are some helpful hints to reduce the numbers 

Containers such as OLD TIRES, RAIN BARRELS, or even EAVESTROUGH can be a potential breeding site for some species of mosquitoes. These should be inspected regularly and drained if larvae are found.

Keep ornamental pools, ponds, and dugouts free of vegetation around the edges. Fish that eat mosquito larvae can be added to bodies of water.

Mosquito adults require shelter. Cutting tall grass, weeds and underbrush removes the areas of shade and high humidity that they need for survival.
