This year with all the extra rain comes along extra bugs. Tips to lessen the insects while you’re trying to enjoy relaxing in your backyard. 

  • When you mulch your bushes and trees, careful on the amount of mulch. Too much mulch will make it a breeding ground for insects. 
  • Mosquitos may have a tough sting, but they’re wimps when it comes to standing up to a breeze. Patio fans can keep your outdoor entertaining space free from mosquitoes (and other little flyers) with the flip of a switch. 
  • Work on your yard to keep it tidy, with mowing and bushes.
  • Keep gutters and downspouts cleaned out, this is another hidden area insects breed. 
  • Any standing water in your backyard, be sure to treat it, keeping in mind of pets and children.
