Clogged gutters can lead to a whole slew of problems around your home. When your gutters fail at redirecting water properly, you might face water and moisture-related problems such as ice dams, foundation damage, mold growth and roof leaks. In the spring, stagnant water in your gutters creates the perfect breeding ground for mosquitos.

Our specialists from Gutter Helmet® Systems of Alabama offer these helpful tips to show you how gutter protection systems can help you say good-bye to these pests, once and for all.

Mosquito Breeding Locations

Adult mosquitoes lay their eggs in stagnant bodies of water. This may be as large as lakes or as small as little puddles in your gutters after a rain shower. The eggs hatch into larvae commonly known as “wigglers,” which spend almost their entire pre-adult life underwater where they develop into pupae and, eventually, fully grown mosquitoes.

Remove Standing Water

As adults, mosquitoes rarely travel far from any bodies of water. You can control their spread by limiting the number of accessible water sources around your home. This includes little pools of water in the gutters.

Prevent Clogged Gutters

Leaves, dirt and other debris that accumulate in your gutters can cause clogs. With the nowhere to go, water backs up in your gutters, attracting mosquitos and other pests.

You can prevent this by installing an effective gutter protection system such as Gutter Helmet, which is designed specifically to prevent gutter clogs.
