Mosquitoes will find water wherever it is - like this basketball goal. If you use water to anchor yours, make sure you plug the fill hole so you don't get fouled by mosquitoes.
Here are a few tips to keep mosquitoes off the court and eliminate places where they breed:
- Check for standing water once a week: plastic covers and tarps, toys, trash cans, paint and other containers, potted plant saucers: flush out saucers with a hose or dump every week, change water in bird baths at least once per week.
- Don’t connect downspouts directly to underground pipes; maintenance and cleaning is not possible and becomes a place for mosquitoes to enter drains. Use catch basins with insect screen below downspouts instead.
- Don’t install flexible drainpipe; use rigid pipe instead and make sure it’s laid so that there are no low spots where water can collect.
