    Hi Matt: As a life-long resident, you will find mosquitos are attracted to some individuals more than others. I'm assume, they find you "desirable". You will want to avoid any shady, tree-lined areas. Unfortunately, all the positives of having shade in your backyard are negatives. There is no magic solution. These are some things to help cope: - Wear long sleeves, pants instead of shorts, socks instead of sandles. Mosquitos do not usually bite through clothing. - Buy one of those closed in screened tents to sit inside. They are typically a 10 by 10 sq feet. - Get an enclosed fire pit. Find out what the local bylaw allows. Fire keeps the mosquitos away. I do not find citronella particularly good. Deet is proven to work ... but it is a pain in the butt to apply every time you want to sit out. Best of luck with this problem. Mosquitos are the scurge of the earth! EMBA33
