Mosquito Identification & Prevention

What are mosquitoes?

The mosquito is a type of biting fly. Over 3,500 species of mosquitoes live worldwide, acting as a food source for many other animals. However helpful that mosquitoes are out in nature, in our yards they are a constant source of frustration and make it impossible for us to enjoy our outdoor spaces. The results of the bites they deliver are unsightly and itchy.

Mosquitoes can be active day and night, but many mosquitoes are most active at dusk and dawn when the weather is coolest, resting from the heat during the middle of the day. We identify a mosquito by its small gray or black elongated body and one pair of thin wings.

Are mosquitoes dangerous?

Mosquitoes are considered dangerous and unwanted pests on our properties because they can transmit diseases to people like malaria (most common in developing or tropical countries), West Nile virus, and Eastern Equine Encephalitis.

Mosquitoes transmit diseases to people and animals through the feeding process. They use their proboscis (specialized mouthpart) to pierce the skin of a host to feed on their blood. Only female mosquitoes consume blood meals; it is a requirement to produce viable eggs and complete their life cycle.

Where Will I Find Mosquitoes?

Most female mosquitoes lay their eggs in areas of standing water that collects in man-made or natural containers. Some mosquitoes will also choose to lay their eggs in dry areas that are prone to flooding.

Common mosquito breeding and gathering sites include:

  • Buckets, flower pots, birdbaths
  • Clogged gutters
  • Woodpiles, brush piles, leaf piles
  • Tree stumps and hollow trees
  • Marshes, swamps, and low-lying areas
