Some residents have called asking about how to control mosquitoes on their property. As we have found in the past certain weather conditions can cause it to be almost impossible to be out side but the Michigan Mosquito Control Association has a web site that offers tips on what to use for helping to control mosquitoes in their various stages of growth.
Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis (Bti) donuts which can be purchased at most hardware stores in our area are the recommended method of stopping mosquitoes in ponds or pools of water in their larva form. Most individual donuts cover an area of approx 100 square feet. If you are looking to stop grown flying mosquitoes there are also foggers available at local hardware stores. Go to Michigan Mosquito Control.
