Surprise! Contrary to popular belief, healthy, functioning wetlands can actually reduce mosquito populations.
A one-page fact sheet from the Indiana Wetlands Conservation Plan points out that healthy wetlands make for smart economics as well. They reference the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection’s Best Management Practices for Mosquito Control (view) where researchers reported that properly maintained wetlands saved tax payers more than 78% per acre over using traditional larvicidesan insecticide that is specifically targeted against the larval life stage of an insect for mosquito management.
