Hello,

The best way to avoid being bitten is to simply stay indoors but this is not a reasonable solution for most of us. Known mosquito breeding area can be treated with Bactimos Briquets which are made of a microbial insecticide that is quite specific. Loose fitting clothing and repellents containing DEET can be effective in keeping the swarms from biting. Propane-fired foggers or ULV (ultra low volume) sprayers can also be used to kill the adult mosquitoes in yards. If large areas need to treated consider one of these: http://www.advancesources.com/solo_450_ulv_cold_mist_fogger.html
