What's the best indoor mosquito trap or other way to get rid of mosquitoes inside your home?
I would get a trap. There are indoor models.

Bounce sheets work to keep them away. My children are allergic to mosquitoe bites so I keep a bounce sheet tucked in their pockets...seems to work for a while.
You've got to eliminate the ones that bite before they get anywhere near indoors. Unfortunately, this usually means an outdoor trap. The female mosquitoes will find the trap before they go indoors looking for you and your family. Look at top traps like the Bantix Mosquito Slayer PRO, which uses carbon dioxide (the gas that's put into fizzy drinks) and other NATURAL attractants to lure the mosquito into the trap where she drowns. You can then tip the mass of dead mosquitoes onto your plants as fertilizer. Beware of spending money on Zappers (the mosquitoes and no-see-ums are often too small to get zapped) and other cheap traps that are not very efficient or robust. Around your family and friends, safety is an issue, the reliable Mosquito Slayer leads the way on this point, as it is only 12volts and doesn't use explosive gasses like some traps do.
Definitely a trap. Mega-Catch make a small model for indoor/outdoor use, the Alpha, and it was reviewed on barefootmommies : http://www.barefootmommies.com/2009/06/ … eview.html
There are electric gadgets that trap and zap mosquitoes. You plug them in and hang them in the middle of a wall or the middle of your ceiling near your light fixture.
Best way is to stop them from getting inside in the first place, ensure you close doors behind you etc. and mesh 'fly screens' at each window. If any happen to still come inside, a little non-irritant fly-spray does the trick
Get bug screens on all your windows. If you've already got bug screens make sure there are no holes in any of them. Another tip is to make sure there's no sitting water anywhere inside our out. Sitting water like in a kids wading pool, attracts mosquitoes.
Traps are hit or miss. Sprays are messy and sticky. Citronella candles are dangerous and toxic indoors. You should try Mosquito Patch by AgraCo. It's all natural, and non-toxic. It's safe for children and grown ups. It uses B-12 to deter the mosquitoes from biting you. If there is no food supply, they will leave. One patch lasts up to 36 hours. Check them out at : http://www.agraco.com. They are running free delivery on every order until August 15th.
I heard of this Glade candle that is safe to light in your house
Buy a few citronella candles, and there is a mosquito repellent plant, too, available to place inside the house , potted. The plant is pretty, mostly green leaves with a fragrance of citronella. Their helpful on long hot days and nights, when the humidity is high. Check at Home Depot and Gardens area of Walmart, for other possible products that will help against Mosquitos inside the home.

The stupid town is spraying for mosquitos tonight and has warned us to shut our windows. Too bad they cannot warn the birds and the bees. Double whammy for the birds - sicken them with poison and kill off a food supply.Bees? Who cares? They are only important for pollinating much...

Why do some people attract mosquitos more than others?Ever experienced sitting outdoors with a group of friends on nice summer day enjoying cold drinks and a barbecue and notice that the mosquitos all seem attracted to you and not seem to be bothering everyone else?
