There have been surprisingly few at my place, definitely less than I'd consider "normal", and my property includes a stream and wetlands where I spend a lot of time.

They did ours two weeks ago at 0400. I think the spray contained mosquito food.
I have a propane fogging gun. If I do it every two days it helps. Any longer than that and they bring in recruits .

As a kid growing up in the St. Louis suburbs in the 1950's and 60's, the mosquitoes were terrible. The town had a truck with a huge fogger and would drive down all the neighborhood streets every few weeks. All the kids would rush and get their bikes to follow right behind that truck, engulfed in the fog. Our parents thought it was amusing. We also had our own fogger that was just a bottle of "bug juice" attached to the lawnmower handle with a tube that dripped it into the muffler. That was one of my regular chores. Amazing that I'm still here to remember that! :)

Anyway, I don't know why, but there have just been very few mosquitoes at my place this summer, and I'm thankful for that.
