I saw in another post that someone mentioned using vinegar to keep ants away & it got me wondering if it would work on mosquitoes too. We have bushes out front, & I think they mostly hang out in there, but also like to hang out by the front door too. Any suggestions of other things you've tried that worked?
For a yard full of bugs, he suggests, do the following three things:
1. Dry out all water, including gutters and flower pots.
2. Use an area spray, such as those from Cutter and Off. The versions you mount on a garden hose cover more area than aerosol cans.
3. As a last resort, purchase a trap. More expensive units that generate carbon dioxide do the best job, according to Consumer Reports.

When I lived in a more humid climate I would spray the brick on the house with a mosquito yard and patio spray. It was one of those things you attach to your hose. Those things seemed to breed on the brick, and because our patio was shaded for a portion of the day they seemed to like hanging out there. They would tear you up when you stepped out to do anything out back.
If you are looking for natural remedies I am not sure. I will see if I can find anything.

also recommended were to plant mosquito repellent plants in the area you are having problems. I know one of them you can actually use part of it for your skin.
