Mosquito Control Tips
P-2 Mosquito Trap should be used in conjunction with other sensible control measures designed to manage mosquito problems. DIY mosquito control should include the following precautions:
Eliminate standing water in low spots, ditches, gutters and similar areas
Empty receptacles that collect water (eg bird baths and pot plant saucers)
Reduce breeding sites by keeping grass mown
Mosquito netting/screens can be used to provide mosquito-free areas
Light coloured clothing is less attractive to some mosquito species and if tightly woven, can give some protection against biting
DEET is considered the most effective mosquito repellent, but should not be used too heavily or on infants under 2 months.
