How to get rid of mosquitoes without killing friendly pollinators

Washington Post: Jean Burns, an associate professor at the College of Arts and Sciences, said that more than 80% of plant communities need some pollinators—including bees, butterflies, beetles and hummingbirds—to reproduce. “If you lose all the pollinators in your yard, you may get a lower yield in your vegetable garden, or your flowering bushes may not make seed and bloom the following year,” she said.
