Mosquitoes lay their eggs in anything holding stagnant water (even in plants, like bromeliads). If left undisturbed, mosquito larvae will hatch from the eggs and develop into adult mosquitoes.
Several photos of people emptying stagnant water from containers and a woman looking at a bromeliad flower where mosquitoes can breed if there's water inside the flower.
The formula for getting rid of mosquitoes is very simple:                                               No water = No mosquitoes
