Umm.... sorry did you mean you need more info ?

Here is the link....
Mosquito Solutions home of the Dragonfly Mosquito System

And sorry its not real Dragon Flies, which would be cool though, but it will take 2-3 years to just hatch them.

Maybe we have something in Plum Island that we can rent to get rid of the mosquitoes ?

i have the same problem + horse flies . last summer I had fly traps and caught quite a lot of them but still get 2-3 of the annoying once that don't go for the trap.

I was using citronella candles all over the yard while they helped a bit, they still didn't solve the problem completely. This year I'm adding tiki torches to the yard scenery as well and see what happens.

You know when I was not a homeowner, I used to look at the Tiki torches and think that they were cool and that one day I will buy them when I have a home.... ha ha.... really funny when I think about it now that it was a curse !!

Actually...this is true. Lemon oil is one of the best bug repellents. We bought a little bottle from a woman at the Strawberry festival last year. The stuff is fantastic.

The mosquitoes are insane this year. I wonder if it has to do with this...

Have you folks noticed a decrease in bats on the Island?

There is a product called Thermacell which is supposed to be good. Anybody ever used it? Does it really work?

Tiki torches smell like burning tires, do not understand the appeal.

Citronella tiki torch fuel works fairly well, and there's also lemon eucalyptus oil - it's been proven by the Centers for Disease Control to be as effective as DEET in repelling mosquitoes and preventing West Nile Virus. You can order tiki torch fuel with lemon eucalyptus here (and I think it smells better than Citronella, too): http://www.fireflyfuel.com/tiki-torch-fuel
