Pooling water can seep into the house, and it can also become a breeding ground for mosquitoes. One of the most common places to find standing water and mosquitoes is in clogged gutters. Leaves and debris keep water from flowing through the downspout. Check your gutters frequently. And while you're at it, there are some other places to check for standing water.
If your outdoor faucet has a leak or drip, the water can pool and attract mosquitoes. Clean out bird baths and pet bowls when not in use. Potted plants and old tires also tend to collect water. Make sure yours are free from any type of pooling. Take a few minutes every week to check around your property. Get rid of any standing water you find. Pooling can be a problem, particularly when it comes to those pesky mosquitoes.
