San Antonio may be one of the most beautiful cities in Texas, but it does have one major drawback: mosquitos. This Southern city often ranks high on national lists of the most mosquito-infested U.S. destinations. Sadly, the warm weather that so many San Antonio residents love also attracts plenty of these pesky flying insects.
In recent years, locals have been even more wary of the buzzing sound of mosquitos thanks to health risks like Zika and West Nile virus. Mosquitos are the main transmitters of these diseases, and without vaccines or treatments available, it’s important to do what you can to protect yourself and your family from mosquitos in San Antonio. The summer season is especially bad when it comes to mosquitos, often to the point where residents feel like they’ve been driven out of their own backyards in order to avoid being covered with red, itchy bites.
One way you can reduce the number of mosquitos in and around your home or business is to get rid of any standing water. That includes bird baths, pet bowls, flower pots, gutters, kiddy pools and rain barrels. There are several other strategies, like avoiding being outdoors at dusk and dawn, dressing in long sleeves and pants, wear light-colored, loose clothing and wearing insect repellent. However, some San Antonio residents might feel as though these methods are a bit restrictive to their lifestyle.
