Female mosquitoes need stagnant still water to lay their eggs. It takes about 2 weeks for a mosquito to mature and begin its feeding cycle. Because of this, backyards can be a perfect place for a mosquito to nest because there can be leftover rainwater in the yard. Left debris, trash, buckets, toys, gutters, anything that can have standing water.
Ticks tend to seek outdoor areas such as hiking trails, outdoor parks, camping grounds, and even your backyard. Ticks wait on the long grass to attach to anything that rubs against the grass. You can prevent ticks from entering your backyard by discouraging unwelcome animals such as deers and raccoons. Mowing the lawn will also help keep the grass low and place a 3 ft barrier of wood chips or gravel between your lawn and wooded areas.
