I don't know how but over the last week we are getting Mosquitos in the house! and they are eating us alive!
How would you get rid of/kill them.

I'm about to bring in a bug zapper from the yard!

Same here in Denton Co, I make sure no water standing, gutters are clear and clean behind bushes next to home. I think my problem is the dog going through doggie door. I think they’re on him and take ride in. I’ve been fumigating every once in a while with a fogger and it seems to help

We have the same problem. My wife breaks out in big whelps when they bite her. These zappers will kill the mosquitoes, but not eliminate them entirely.
Amazon sells them and also Home Depot.

I had the same problem. The hot water heater safety water drip pan has a pvc drain pipe going outside. The pipe is open and bugs like mosquitos can enter any time. I have placed a piece of plastic screen around the pipe opening outside. Used a cable tie to secure it to the pipe. We haven't noticed any more mosquitos inside the house. Just my 2cents

We are having a similar problem. Wife and I aren't bothered too much but the little ones (6 months old) gets a new bite every other day mad. Considering a home spray misting system--anyone have experience there?

I had this same problem and solved it by inspecting, then replacing worn weatherstripping around doors.

When dark, turn lights off. Have someone go outside and shine a flashlight at door perimeter, and see if you have any small gaps between door edge and jamb where weatherstripping may have flattened over time/use. Replace worn sections.

Keep any lights right around your door off. That way there is not a swarm of bugs getting in every time you open the door. Keep in mind this could be inside lights as well if you have windows by the door.

If you have an aerobic septic system make sure all your ptraps have water in them and pour some bleach or peroxide in them now and then. Also pull lid on the tank and spray in there. I had them in the master bath bad one year and it is closet to the tank.Never had any windows open in the bedroom or bath.
