What Attracts Mosquitoes?
There are many things in your yard that may be attractive to mosquitoes, including still and stagnant water. This means any ponds, marshes, pools, playsets, gardens, buckets, etc. that hold standing water can be a source of attraction for mosquitoes.
When finding a host to feed on, mosquitoes are attracted to exhaled breath, natural scent, and even your blood type! Mosquitoes seem to be more attracted to some individuals than others.
