Mosquitoes are drawn to ponds, stagnant water, lakes, kiddie pools, and marshes. Anywhere there is standing water, mosquitoes will target. Emptying kiddie pools between each use, divert rainwater and runoff away from the property, and installing underground drainage systems will help deter further mosquito infestation.
