Finding the Natural Habitat of Mosquitos
To fully get rid of mosquitos, it is crucial to discover where they are living on your property. Otherwise, even if you manage to get rid of the current population, future generations are just going to come right back, as soon as the new batches of eggs hatch in the places where they are still safely hidden. In the wild, mosquitos could be found in many areas, ranging from holes in the ground to under the brush, resting in hollow logs or empty caves. When they come to infest your backyard, their habitats are just as varied, although they seem to greatly prefer places with a water source.
It is quite common to also discover mosquitos living and laying eggs in places like:
- Water buckets and watering cans
- The mouths of hoses
- Fountains and ponds
- Toys and tools left outside after a rain
- In the tall grass
- Holes of trees
- Underneath stones
