Default Container Pond Mosquitoes

I hate mosquitoes! No joke, I went outside (at my dad's house) for less than 5 minutes to plant oregano and rosemary and I got at least 25 bites. So I was wondering if I put out a small container pond (a big pot) with loads of plants and a bunch of endlers/guppies/platies/anything that eats mosquito eggs &larvae would it cut down on the breeding? My logic is that they will lay eggs in the pond rather than another place. The fish will eat the eggs and the adults will go DIE. Does this make any sort of sense? Right now I stay indoors whenever I go to his house because going outside means either get mobbed by mosquitoes or spray down with toxic bug spray. We have plenty of spiders, I was admiring them while planting and turned to see my ankle covered with at least 7 mosquitoes. I'm ashamed to say I dropped everything and ran screaming. That is nightmare material.

So, container pond, will it help control the mosquitoes or make it worse?
