What eats mosquitoes?

Answer

Predators that eat mosquitoes are the mosquito fish, guppies, birds, dragonflies, and bats. To control mosquito numbers, try putting bird houses in your yard to attract mosquito-eating birds. Likewise, bat houses should attract beneficial bats to a yard. Avoid using pesticides harmful to dragonflies and other mosquito-eating insects.
