Controlling Mosquitoes: Are Repellents Enough?

Many of us have experienced being bitten by mosquitoes, and they are unpleasant. Bites from these tiny insects cause skin irritation, as well as the appearance of red bumps accompanied by itching. Mosquitoes can also carry disease.

Controlling Mosquitoes: Are Repellents Enough?

One way of countering mosquitoes involves the use of repellent products. For the most part, these have been helpful in protecting people against illnesses associated with these bugs. The question, however, is if they are enough. Renewal by Andersen® of Kansas City, your local window company, explains more in today’s blog post.

Preventing Mosquitoes

As long as there is standing water, mosquitoes are sure to utilize it to breed and multiply. In addition to marshes, swamps, clogged ditches and puddles, other potential sites where mosquitoes can lay their eggs include objects that tend to collect standing water. These include tree holes, buckets, old tires and potted plant trays, to name a few.

Removing water from these objects is one way to curb the spread of these insects. Then again, you’d want to ensure your home’s indoors are likewise protected so that you and your family members are safe. This is where our replacement windows come into play.
