Have the Mosquitos Gotten Really Bad Recently?

“Is it just me or have the mosquitos gotten worse over the course of the summer? I feel like in early July I could actually work in our front yard garden with minimal mosquito, but in the last two weeks or so, I can barely stop to pull a single weed without getting devoured. And this is when the yard is in full sun. Interestingly, we do not seem to have the same problem in our backyard. Our next door neighbor passed away and the crew renovating her house has allowed the front yard to get terribly out of control, which has brought in a plague of aphids. Could it also be responsible for the mosquitos?”
