If the temperature is more than 50 degrees and you have standing water on or near your property, there’s a very high probability you have mosquitos. Although they typically come out in the morning and twilight hours, they can be heard and/or seen at any time of the day, especially in high humidity. Generally speaking, you will hear or see mosquitos buzzing around, or you will feel them when they bite you.
Female mosquitos must lay their eggs in water for them to survive so be sure to keep an eye on any water trays for plants that you might have in your home. You might see small wriggling creatures, which are the larvae, and in this case, you should remove the water and throw it away immediately to avoid the problem getting any worse.

Mosquitos are attracted to standing water, as it is their main breeding ground. To find mosquitos in your home, you should identify areas in your property where water tends to collect. Clogged gutters or pipes can be a prime breeding ground for mosquitos and should be cleared to make your home less attractive to these pesky insects. If you have a pool or hot tub in your home, this can also be an attractive place for mosquitos to seek out. Be sure to keep these areas clean and chlorinated so female mosquitos can’t lay their eggs there.
Keeping mosquitos out of your home can be very difficult but there are some steps that you can take to help keep them away. You can use mosquito repellents that contain DEET, a chemical that is commonly used to repel mosquitos. Another option is to use natural repellents such as citronella candles or a citronella oil burner. It’s also important that you eliminate as much standing water from around your property as possible as this is one of the main ways that mosquitos will be attracted to your home. Finally, if you have screens on your windows or doors, be sure to use them and patch up any holes to prevent mosquitos from gaining access.
