The Life Cycle Of A Mosquito
Mosquitoes go through several developmental stages on their way toward becoming adults:
- Egg: Mosquitoes lay eggs near or in water to start the process. They don’t need much; only a cap full of water will do.
- Larva: Once the eggs hatch, mosquitoes spend time as larvae. During this phase, they live in water and feed constantly to grow.
- Pupa: Larvae then change into pupae. They don’t feed during this time but still live in water.
- Adult: Mosquitoes finally reach adulthood, leave the water, and immediately start feeding. This starts the cycle all over again.

Mosquitoes Are Considered A Public Health Risk
When mosquitoes feed on a host, they do so with a needle-like appendage that they use to pierce the skin. They inject their saliva into the bite area while feeding to keep the blood from thickening. However, if a mosquito feeds on a host infected with a dangerous pathogen, it can carry it within its body. Later, when the mosquito feeds on other hosts, it can literally inject the pathogen along with its saliva. This is why mosquitoes are considered one of the most prolific disease-causing insects on the planet. Mosquitoes are associated with West Nile virus, tularemia, and encephalitis.

Factors That Attract Mosquitoes To Your Property
One of the most significant factors that attract mosquitoes to your property is standing water. Mosquitoes need water to reproduce, and they only need a small amount. In fact, mosquitoes can reproduce in only a cap full of water. One of the first and best mosquito prevention techniques you can utilize in your yard is to eliminate standing water. Mosquitoes are also attracted to overgrown lawns, hedges, and bushes because they use these as harborage areas during the daytime. Keeping these bushes trimmed is a good way to decrease your chances of dealing with mosquitoes. Finally, the number one draw for mosquitoes in your yard is you. If you are outside when mosquitoes are active, they will flock to you to get the blood they want. Mosquitoes are the most active at dawn and dusk, and staying inside at these times can help decrease your chances of encountering mosquitoes.
