I think the many different smells of all the plants mask our scent. On the flip side when we walk the 20 paces to the neighbors front lawn they swarm. Oh, and standing water isn't the cause of our mosquitoes, moist soil is.

But that attracts some other guests, especially mosquitoes. So, I discovered some ways to keep mosquitoes out of bird baths by changing the water regularly and use mosquito dunks. In addition, using moving water in bird bath is also the effective method.
