Use Coffee to Keep Away Mosquitoes

Age your old coffee grounds for about a month in an open container and sprinkle them wherever you see standing water to kill mosquito larva. (Don't use in fish tanks or where there are water plants, etc.) You can also use leftover coffee in a spray on weeds and outdoor surfaces, as these insects hate the aroma! Cheap, easy, and relatively non-toxic!
