Anyone know how to get rid of Asian Tiger mosquitoes?

Hi all- I'm new to posting here and I am desperate to get rid of these mosquitoes. I live in NJ, and just moved to this house last summer- and we were held captive inside all last summer into fall. We would get attacked by them- any time of the day, and when I say attacked I mean in swarms. We did not have this problem at our last house which was 6 blocks away. We did the obvious and removed anything in our yard that would hold water. We are currently ripping out all of the ivy along the perimeter of the property, and leveling all areas where water may settle. We also called our county mosquito control, but they weren't very helpful.
Any other suggestions? Please help- We purchased this property for its spacious beautiful lot and the thought of not being able to use it is making me ill.

You need to find out where they are hatching from. Once you find out you can treat the water with mosquito dunks, and or toss the water out. I suggest you look in the smallest of holes. They are adept at living in tree holes and even the tiniest amount of water (bottom of plant potty, dog dish - anything else which may hold even the smallest of water.
