I'm no entomologist but they do look like Aedes aegyptii (that carry dengue, yellow fever, etc). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aedes_aegypti
there is a marking on the thorax that I can't really see.
Our rule here is to assume that all mosquitoes are aedes and do our best to keep them out.

Hmm I see. Well it resembles more like Aedes Albopictus https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aedes_albopictus

Entirely possible. But both types carry dengue, yellow fever, zika, etc.
