Water leaks are common and many leaks outside your home are easy to spot. If you or your neighbor has a hose bibb leaking, an outside valve or a sprinkler puddling water in the yard, you can be impacted in more places than your pocketbook. I understand everyone is busy and a small water leak may not be the top priority, but a small leak outside can bring on more serious problems and affect the health of you and your family.
Not only will you have a high water bill and waste our precious water resources here in Phoenix, but puddling water can be a breeding ground for mosquitoes. ProBest Pest Control’s blog share’s the importance of why you don’t want to attract mosquitoes around your home.

West Nile is a very serious virus and we all must help to reduce the risks in our neighborhoods. We must watch for and get rid of standing water around our own homes and neighborhoods quickly to minimize the danger and to keep this virus from spreading.
The Center for Disease Control offers some safe helpful tips to protect yourself if you find yourself around mosquitoes.
We have focused all our efforts in the last 26 years of service to the valley trying to keep people safe. This time of year it is important to watch the rain water that collects around the neighborhood, the pool water that doesn’t stay maintained and the plumbing leaks that continue to run. It is each of our own responsibility to help out.
