Default no mosquito cities?

What cities don't have mosquitoes? I'm guessing Arizona cities?

We only get them during our Monsoon Season.

There were no mosquitoes in Boston or Miami Beach. I assume it is the same for any coastal city. My theory is they can't breed in salt water.

I was thinking maybe Honolulu, but mosquitoes were introduced to Hawaii in the 1800s or so. (Not intentionally introduced, at least I assume)

I suppose I'd guess somewhere cool to cold and dry. Does Boise or Pocatello in Idaho get many mosquitoes?

I remember being most struck in Boulder, CO by the restaurants having no screens around their al fresco dining. Must not be a good area if you're a bug.

No.

There are nearly 50 species of mosquitoes in Minnesota and at least 28 bite humans. The ones in Minnesota do not carry yellow fever or malaria.

Yeah... I think there was more than a bit of sarcasm in that. The Land of Ten-Thousand Lakes is most definitely going to have a mosquito or two.

Manhattan, part of a city, the same can't be said for BBQ and SI.
