What eats mosquitoes?

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.
