Why are there so many mosquitos in my yard? They are eating me alive! What can I do to help control the mosquito population?

Here are some helpful hints to reduce the numbers 

Containers such as OLD TIRES, RAIN BARRELS, or even EAVESTROUGH can be a potential breeding site for some species of mosquitoes. These should be inspected regularly and drained if larvae are found.

Keep ornamental pools, ponds, and dugouts free of vegetation around the edges. Fish that eat mosquito larvae can be added to bodies of water.

Mosquito adults require shelter. Cutting tall grass, weeds and underbrush removes the areas of shade and high humidity that they need for survival.
