Where do mosquitoes breed around your home? 

These are some common examples of places where water collects and where mosquitoes commonly lay their eggs and complete their development.

Check sources around your home to prevent mosquito breeding. Dump, drain, empty out anything that's holding stagnant water, especially if you see mosquito larvae in it.
