    Make sure you have no standing water anywhere in your yard. Even a discarded coke can in the bushes could be a breeding ground for them. If you do have any areas and you can't get rid of the water, they make Mosquito dunks you can toss in the water to kill them.

    I read a bunch of good reviews on these but haven't tried them, Mosquito's don't like me very much....

    Here too. Staying indoors seems to be the solution for us.

    Use those dichlor pucks in ponds or fountains (non pool related) that animals don't drink from.

    BT (or BTI) pucks are better for any standing water you don't want to get rid of.

    Last summer we put a few tiki torches around the pool, and it worked great! Once our new pool is up I plan to do it again. We used a tiki fluid called Bite Fighter, bought at Walmart.
