Mosquitoes use plants and shrubs to feed and for shelter during resting periods. When breeding, however, most species need standing water where the females can lay eggs and the larvae and pupae can develop.
A good natural mosquito control is to eliminate standing water (which is a breeding ground for mosquitoes).
*Remember that even a discarded soda cans or water collecting inside of an old tire hold enough space to support a colony of mosquitoes.
