All About MosquitosAll About Mosquitoes

 

Mosquitoes are not just a nuisance; they can harbor very serious diseases that affect millions world-wide. Because mosquitoes feed on the blood of animals and humans, they can easily transmit diseases; which is why it is so important to control mosquitoes.

 

No wonder they are so prevalent: The mosquito reaches its mature adult state in as little as 4 days, but most reach full maturity within two weeks. After only two days as an adult, a female mosquito is able to bite its first victim.

mosquito reproduction

Female mosquitoes can lay up to 300 eggs at one time. Some female mosquito species need very little water to lay eggs. Water sources could include the ruts of a tire track, a small hole in a tree, a small flowerpot, or even an old coffee cup.

Mosquito Habitat

 

In one way or another, a mosquito’s life revolves around a water source. All mosquitoes require water in each stage of development for maturation, and as an adult, the female lays her eggs in the water.

 

 

 

 

Mosquito Diet

 

Mosquitoes are nectar eaters. The female does not draw blood from mammals for food, she does it for the development of her eggs!
