Ponds and birdbaths become potential mosquito breeding grounds if they collect standing water for weeks. Garbage cans left opened also becomes a possible mosquito breeding ground. It is better to keep such containers upside down or well covered when not being used.

Pets in the home, especially dogs may also become a threat to mosquitoes Dogs and cats bitten by mosquitoes can be infected but does not necessarily become ill.
