  1. Reduce moisture around the foundation of your home by installing gutter downspout extensions, reducing the depth of your mulch or pine straw, caulking all cracks around doors or windows and where plumbing comes through the exterior walls, and extending condensation drain lines from your HVAC system that drain to the outside of your home.
  2. Eliminate stagnant water in birdbaths, dog bowls, flowering pots and kids toys to reduce the mosquito population and breeding sites.
  3. Trim trees, bushes and shrubs that are in contact or within 3 feet of your home.
