How do I kill the mosquitos without harming the frogs, toads, snakes, mantis, ect?

I have a small ditch behind my lot. I've heard mineral oil will put a film on the surface that the skeeter larva can't get through for air.
Any other suggestions?

you need to go back to science class. oil is lighter so it floats no matter what. he can use old corn oil or any other cooking oil also. its just a cost factor.

dump it in. at the worst you will save time battering your frog legs

i wonder if spraying it coats the whole area compared to dumping it which will stay bunched up in one area. just taking a guess.
