Annoying and Dangerous

This is a down to earth garden tip from Martin’s Pet and Garden Center.

This past week the mosquito population has exploded in some areas while not so much in other areas.

Warm evening temperatures can make them fully active.


Reducing mosquito bites can be achieved by the use of both personal and yard repellents, loose fitting clothing, tight fitting screens and yard sprays labeled for mosquito control.

Mosquito Bits control mosquito larvae by adding this biological control to standing water.

Mosquito Beater is a natural mosquito repellent for lawns and is applied directly on the ground with their shaker container. It can last for a couple of weeks. Mosquito Better Ready to spray is an insecticide for lawn areas and shrubbery, just attach to a garden hose. Fertilome’s new MosquitoGo is an aerosol yard fogger that controls mosquitos and biting flies.

For mosquito control solutions, stop by Martin’s Pet and Garden Center in downtown Elkhart, where we make YOU the expert.
