Water containers like bird baths surely aren't a problem as long as the water is changed? It takes mosquitoes a while to colonise and reproduce. It's usually stagnant water which is the issue.

Dear Coggies

Does anyone have tips for their control {except normal pest control firm ] which I’ll be ringing again tomorrow.

Their ph advice was to empty any water containers in garden(!!!)  There were only 5 in all ,for birds to refresh wash etc; now all gone.

Is there some way one can obviate this obvious approach?

I am `wearing’ multiple bites & allergic rashes that result from their attention.
