Using a Maxx Air Flow fan 24", the Orange one from The Home Depot $99 (EXCELLENT FANS) You can clean an area in a few nights breaking an uncontrolled population cycle. This option requires 250 watts of electricity but does not require any pesticides. The screens serve a dual purpose, they also collect dust and fine particulates and eventually form a mat of air junk. The screen provides an easy cleaning option and prevents dire from entering the bearings of the induction motor. The solar option uses a 27 watt blower fan and works great for pigeon and chicken coops, animal kennels and outdoor porches.

Place the fans near infested or high traffic areas. KEEP FANS DRY, no rain. Always Unplug when servicing screens or moving. Place the inlet side towards people or animals so you suck the mosquitos away. This also sucks in carbon dioxide creating an attraction trail for the mosquitos to follow sticking them to the back of the fan:-)

I have a few more options in the works:

WATER COLLECTION NESTS
By placing leaves and yard debris in the bottom of a container and filling it with water, the leaves decompose and provide an attractive spot for mosquitos to place their larvae. Once visible, you MUST collect the larvae with a fine fish net and dry them in the sun. This option prevent mosquitos from nesting in ditches and other areas where you cannot stop the cycle. YOU MUST clean daily or you create a mosquito farm.

BATS:

I have a DIY VIDEO on how to build a bat house and tips on getting bats to hang out:-)

Instead of catching the adults , try killing the larva and break the cycle.. You can use VectoBac CG which is a BTI or Natular G30 which contains Spinosad .. You can get these from Clarke Control Products ..If your catching thousands a night your local Mosquito Control isn't doing there job. Unless they are Aedes Taeniorhynchus (salt marsh)Mosquitos which come off synchronously , you shouldnt be having that many..Fight The Bite
