Many homes have walls that have a rough texture similar to outdoor plants where mosquitoes naturally thrive.  This means that mosquitoes are likely to hide undetected in or on the interior walls.  This is especially true of homes made of natural materials like grasses, sticks, hides and adobe-type rough bricks.  Plastering the interior walls and painting them white can make it much easier to see any mosquitoes and kill them.
