Mosquitoes in Forney Texas
Mosquitoes love the warm and humid weather in Texas. The ideal temperature for mosquitoes is 50 degrees Fahrenheit and warmer which makes April through October the height of mosquito season in Forney.
Unfortunately, mosquitoes are more than simply pesky pests. Some species of mosquitoes are known to carry West Nile and Zika viruses. While the City of Forney has a spray program, because of the threat of disease, many homeowners take to controlling the mosquito population around their own homes, too.
What You Can Do To Help Control The Mosquito Population & Protect Yourself From Mosquitoes
- Regularly check your yard for standing water, including pots, gutters, toys and garbage cans. Empty out anything that can hold water.
- Change water in pet dishes, planters, birdbaths and kids’ wading pools regularly.
- If there are areas of standing water around your home that cannot be drained, this needs to be treated.
- Ensure your bug screens are tight
- Use bug lights in outdoor lighting fixtures
- Keep grass and yard neat and tidy
- Use mosquito repellent that contains DEET to help prevent mosquito bites
- Wear long pants and sleeves, especially at dawn and dusk
