Can they get inside the house from the woodstove/path?It sounds like water is puddling somewhere. This could be at the bottom of a tee, or in the ash cleanout, depending on the stove hookup. If there is no cap on the chimney then the opportunity for this to happen is high.
We do have a cap, no water, double wall stove pipe straight thru the roof (no masonry), 5' stainless pipe on the roof, new construction, Pacific Energy woodstove. About to loose my marbles LOL!!It sounds like water is puddling somewhere. This could be at the bottom of a tee, or in the ash cleanout, depending on the stove hookup.

No, not entirely certain they are coming from the stove. Just that we've plugged (literally) every crevice imaginable (even the outlets) & the swarm inside the woodstove is the only thing we can't seem to figure out. We will climb on the roof & put a bag over the pipe just for $h!ts & giggles if nothing else. Worth a shot! No A/C here (yet) so that's not a factor.That's an odd one. Are you sure they are coming from the stove?
If the interior of the house is cooled with AC then the interior of the pipe might be sweating. That's just a guess. You could try putting a bag over the top of the chimney pipe and a band around it to seal off the flue to see if that helps.
If it’s a super or T5 look under the ash drawer. There are 2 air intakes. 1 round that doesn’t close, and then your primary/secondary that won’t close completely either.Can they get inside the house from the woodstove/path?
Direct a household fan at the door of the stove in order to open the door. The mosquitos can't fly into the direction of the blown air. Then spray to kill them...just a thought...We also have the same problem! 1st before any of you reply - to light a fire ASAP, let me say there is absolutely no way I'm opening that door. Impossible to open, light a fire & not have 100 in the house immediately.
So - the mosquitoes are there, don't know how. But - is there any way that they can get inside the house from there? We have so many INSIDE the house & we've exhausted all the options of - riding in with us going in/out, coming thru screens (haven't opened a window in 5+ days), & any other possible holes. We are wondering about the air intake (ours is in the wall thru to attic). But the attic has R60 (deep) insulation. Back to - can they get inside the house from the woodstove chamber? TIA
