With the beautiful weather upon us, we are sure to see the young and young-at-heart venture outside more often. Now is the time to get outside and enjoy the wonder and beauty of nature. But whether you are taking a walk, working in your garden, or listening to the quiet sounds of sunset in your backyard, make sure you’re doing it safely.
Your own backyard can truly be a fun-filled and exciting place full of wonders. We cannot forget, however, to make sure it’s a safe place as well. When getting your yard summer-ready, remove places where rain can collect and become stagnant. The warm weather combined with a forgotten swimming pool filled with water can become a breeding ground for mosquitoes which are more than just a nuisance. They are carriers for many diseases such as West Nile Virus.
