Please walk through and check your yard for any standing water. Help us all out!
Move stuff and look! (I just found some water that I was unaware a stack of plant pots, but no mosquitos.)

Then ask your neighbors to check their yard, for you as a personal favor.

Applying DEET, every time we go outside, is NOT a realistic answer.
