Mosquitoes ( skeeters)

I have not had the pleasure of squashing one yet this spring but, I will note its color scheme the next time I get one flattened .

Cheap, easily done and stuck in the ground around the house in non-descript places...
Dortress, have you tried this yet? I am considering the same thing. When I turn on the porch light I see what look like hundreds of mosquitos lined up against the sliding door waiting to come in, stepping outside is like getting my blood drawn...
There is no standing water on our property but the house next door is foreclosed so I would venture a guess that there are several puddles, buckets, pool remnants, gutters or whatever with stagnant water in it.
So I think poisoning them off might be the best option since I can't control the breeding grounds next door.
