Summer buggin’

Thursday, May 24, 2018 by Katy McElroy

Hot, muggy summer days bring mosquitoes and other bugs to your backyard, which can really be a bummer for your evening porch beers. Austin Code has released a few tips for minimizing the bother. First of all, don’t let anything gather standing water: Flip over any buckets or plastic containers you have outside. The city suggests that you “donate larger items to a local shelter, take tires and other recyclables to a local recycling center. Do not throw them in your alley or create a dumping location.” In addition, keep lawns under 12 inches.
