    Mosquitoes are a way of life. You can never get rid of them no matter what you do. All you can do is try to keep them away with anything they don't like. I use Citronella Geraniums, tiki torches and citronella candles in our seating area and an electronic bug zapper if it is needed.

    sketters breed in still water. Remove all standing water. If you have a fountain keep it running day and night. There is a product that comes in a donut shape for rain barrels and a granular form for wet areas. The idea is to kill the larva. I think the product is called mosquito will also control gnats of a certain type.

    For some reason I don't know, mosquitoes don't like Bounce, Snuggle, and other Dryer Sheets, you could carry a couple with you; sometimes I even place one on my pillow at night if mosquitoes are too persistent and it works like magic! Otherwise Catnip, Geranium and Citronella essential oils will do the trick
