While everyone here at Mosquito Joe loves our job, who doesn’t love a good Friday, right? The weekend is ahead of you and whether you’ve got plans to be productive or the plan is to have no plans, the weekend is a beautiful thing. But today is a very special and important Friday around here. Why? IT IS THE FIRST DAY OF SPRING! WE MADE IT!
We know, we know. The first day of spring doesn’t mean we magically wake up to sunny and warm temperatures, but it does mean we aren’t far from it and we are pretty excited about that. Over the past year Mosquito Joe has experienced some phenomenal growth and we are now making outside fun again in 23 states. So, we’ve become very familiar with weather patterns in a lot of the country and some of you are still battling the cooler temps. But, we’re here to remind you there is light at the end of the tunnel and wish you a happy first day of spring.
Light at the end of the tunnel also means there could be swatting as well. Remember these tips: mosquitoes breed in standing water so regularly empty ponds, bird baths, fountains, plant pots, buckets, barrels, tarps, kid toys, pet water dishes or anywhere else that water may gather.
- Clean out gutters and examine them for damage that would cause water to collect.
- Drill holes in tire swings, trash cans or recycle bins so water drains out.
- Keep swimming pools clean, properly circulated and filtered. Keep children’s wading pools empty and on their sides when they aren’t being used.
- Cut grass and shrubs short, as adult mosquitoes gather to rest in shady, cool areas. Keep your yard weed-free and avoid overgrown vegetation.
And of course, spring means our mosquito control service season is either here or coming soon (depending on where you live). Mosquito Joe takes our job of keeping your yard safe and itch-free seriously so give us a call to make sure you are on the schedule.
