Looking for a way to keep mosquitoes under control this summer? Well, if you’ve got downspouts and downspout extenders there is an ideal breeding ground right in your backyard. Downspout extenders are a great way to direct rainwater away from your home, but the corrugated design often leads to an accumulation of stagnant water. This leftover water is the perfect place for mosquitoes to lay their eggs.
We created DrainStuff as an easy way to prevent mosquitoes and other pests from using your gutter system to breed in. The minimalist design is effective and easy to install while letting rainwater pass through unimpeded. DrainStuff is made from the same high-quality polyether outdoor foam as GutterStuff® and is infused with a UV and germicide protectant to prevent bacteria growth in your downspout.
Installation is easy, just insert DrainStuff foam into the end of your downspout or downspout extender and that is it, removal is just as simple. DrainStuff measures 4.4″ across and 2.2″ deep and can be easily be cut to fit smaller openings. DrainStuff also works great with rain barrels as a simple way to prevent debris from accumulating in the bottom of your rain barrel.
DrainStuff is available in packages of 4 to protect every corner of your home, but with the ease and variety of use, it is always useful to have a few extra on hand.
