Living in rural Saskatchewan, I am no stranger to mosquitoes. Some years there don’t seem to be too many and avoiding the outdoors during dawn and dusk is enough to tolerate the itch-inducing pests. Other years the mosquito population is so high that the bugs end up preventing all kinds of outdoor fun.
This year Saskatchewan had an unusually warm spring. And while that meant that we got to have much more outdoor fun than usual, it also meant that mosquitoes made an early appearance! Luckily, this year I had the chance to take back my yard with the help of the GreenStrike Mosquito Preventer!
This innovative device is a must for anyone whose yard is plagued by mosquitoes in the summer. Essentially, it uses unique lures to simulate a pond environment that encourages female mosquitoes to lay their eggs in the device. Then it kills the eggs using a Zero-Hatch technology filtration system to minimize mosquito populations in the area. But the best part is that the lures and mosquito attractants are recycled back into the pond chamber of the device, making it even more appealing to mosquitoes the longer it’s in use!
I set up the GreenStrike Mosquito Preventer about two weeks ago and initially I didn’t notice much of a difference. But after about a week had gone by, I realized that even during the peak mosquito hours of dawn and dusk, I didn’t need to use bug spray. Since I don’t like the chemicals in commercial bug spray at all, I was pretty delighted about being able to go without!
The best thing about the GreenStrike Mosquito Preventer is that it works all summer long to continually minimize mosquito populations; so the longer it’s in the yard, the better the results will be. And I can’t wait to see what a difference that makes come late summer! In fact, having just listened to a sudden thunderstorm break outside, I’m happy to know that mosquitoes will be laying their eggs in the Mosquito Preventer instead of in the many puddles around the house.
The GreenStrike Mosquito Preventer is available exclusively at Home Hardware and with summer just a few days away, there’s no better time to get this device set up in your yard to start eliminating mosquitoes. It’s an easy, safe and chemical-free way to ensure that you can enjoy summer even more this year!
