If you have plants around your jacuzzi then check the soil. Sometimes if the earth is moist it's a good breeding ground for both insects. If you find you see nothing, take a plant sprayer (with water) and give each plant a shot and if there are mosquitoes or gnats in the soil or on the plants they'll fly off and you'll know for sure the little rotters are there. Plants that have fruit on them (edible or not) will attract both insects as well as tropical plants or other plants that have a sweet smell to them. If this is so, then remove them and put them outside for decoration and away from the jacuzzi. You can also get "bug zappers" (at least two) to get rid of them. The zapping sounds when they kill the insects can be annoying, but it's better than having them fly around. I would also phone a pool company and ask them if there is anything you can do to the water to keep these insects away. Mosquitoes and gnats love humidity so you have the perfect set-up for them. Good luck Marcy

No. They can't get through the enclosed system and inside the house there is a filter. When a filter is changed all that is seen is dust.

A mosquito may be flying around someone's head in the open because it is looking for nourishment. Females mosquitoes buzz around humans until they can land and bite.

When a group of dragonflies is flying in the yard it means that they are looking for food. Dragonflies eat other smaller bugs. A group of them in the yard might also mean that mosquitoes are present.

Crayfish cannot eat adult mosquitoes. Crayfish are aquatic. However, baby crayfish love to eat mosquito larvae. Mosquito larvae begin their life in water and later grow into their adult flying form.

small flying insects such as mosquitoes and flies. They may also catch and eat honey bees -- then they are regarded as pests by the beekeepers

Yes, because unless stuff is falling on them, they aren't affected because it is the ground moving and not the air they are flying in.
