This is the best thing I have ever found to keep the mosquitos away! Thermacell!
Hi Leisa, there are lots of posts here on mosquitos:
We plant marigolds in our garden and it really does repel them. We also keep a fountain in the pond so there's no standing water around.
I would double check that you don't have any standing water anywhere on your property. As long as the water is moving they won't lay their eggs in it. I have a pump in my horse's water tank that keeps the water moving and a little solar fountain in our bird bath as well. Makes a big difference!
Hi Leisa, this should help you out,

I have luck this year with a citronella plant and lemongrass on my patio. It might cut down on them a little for you?
Two of these dramatically reduce the mosquitos on my property. https://amzn.to/3jxblWq

Have you tried burning a few citronella candles when you are outside? You could also try wearing lightweight long sleeves and pants if it’s not too hot. You can also purchase all natural mosquito repellent - I bought some on Amazon.
Mosquitoes hate moving air currents. Add an oscillating stand fan to the plants / ideas listed above, and you should have few to no mosquitoes.
Hi Leisa: Here's what I use:
Mosquito yard spray: 1 big bottle of cheap blue mouthwash - 3 cups Epsom salt - 3 12oz bottles of cheap stale beer. Mix until salt is dissolved. Put in spray bottle and spray everything. Won't harm plants or flowers. It says that mosquitoes will be gone for 80 days - if it doesn't rain, I guess. Spray your sitting areas too. Has a nice mint smell. Whomever passed this along to me got it from a Paul Harvey show. Yeah, you young 'ens don't remember him:(
I have mint plants in my yard. Mint seems to repel mosquitoes. You can tell a mint plant from a regular plant by their stems. They are squarish where other plant stems are round. I have Lemon Mint and Spearmint plants. They really spread and are quite invasive, so either put them in a pot or in an area that they can't spread. I have mine growing as a hedge around my sitting area, but there is a lot of upkeep to that and keeping the volunteers in check. Good luck!
