When pesky mosquitoes join your backyard barbecue, they can ruin a good time.
Mosquito bites are both annoying and potentially dangerous.
Make your yard less attractive to mosquitoes by eliminating or maintaining outside items that hold water.
If your home has a pond or fountain, help kill mosquito eggs by adding chemicals called larvicides.
Make sure you, your family and backyard guests use insect repellent.
To keep mosquitoes away from exposed skin, cover up as much as possible. When practical, wear long-sleeved shirts, pants and socks.
If all else fails, move the party inside. The fun doesn’t need to stop!
