Any Entomologists Out There?

According to HowStuffWorks,
“All mosquitoes lay eggs in water, which can include large bodies of water, standing water (like swimming pools) or areas of collected standing water (like tree holes or gutters).”
Why are there little pesky culicidae over here? Hello - it’s the desert! You have to add water to even get into the single digits on the relative humidity scale in this place!!!!
Since it started cooling off over here about a month ago, these things have more air power that any third world country.
What am I missing (OK, except for a bit of blood) - conceptually I mean?
