  • If you have a puddle of water that is probably the breeding spot. You can go to your local farm supply store and buy tablets that you can put in the puddle it will kill the larvae. If you cannot afford to do this, plain old table salt will kill them too.

  • i would call the landlord about the standing water outside and then bug candles etc... you know we have the same problem here in Iowa where i am... worst bug season ever... since i have been able to walk around. my son is allergic to the bites as well so we stay in... i swear i am going crazy

  • They are inside? How did so many get in? Candles just deter them, not kill them so you may not get any relief with that. You may have to get some bug spray or a bat... they eat thousands of mosquitoes a day. Since you live in an apartment, call your landlord and tell him that he really needs to take care of this issue outside and in!

  • Pour bleach in the standing water to kill the eggs. Call the health dept and file a complaint. For ones in the house? Get a bug bomb.
