    Light several citronella candles in the area. They should ward off all the mosquitoes.

    Look at all areas that may be harboring water. Mosquitoes will breed in a cap full of water. Make sure grass is cut on a regular basis. If you have a lot of shrubs and plants that provide a cooling place during the day, use equal parts of lemon scented dish soap, lemon juice and water to spray. Alternate every two weeks with the above mixture and a mixture of lemon scented ammonia and water (equal parts). Should solve your problem naturally.

    remove all standing water. Keep beds clean without debris and damp leaves. Get a mosquito service.

    Install a bat box nearby! Bats eat mosquitoes.
