What Are They & How To Identify
A mosquito is an insect that bites and feeds on the blood of humans and other animals. While male mosquitoes only eat nectar, females need blood meals in order to produce viable eggs that will hatch.
These pests are active from dusk until dawn, but many other mosquito species are known as day feeders and are active during the day, especially around the dusk and dawn timeframes. They find their hosts via: exhaled carbon dioxide, heat, moisture, and scent.
*In addition to being a nuisance, some types of these pests are vectors of diseases. Common illnesses caused by infected mosquitoes include encephalitis and West Nile virus.
What Can Attract Mosquitoes?
The most common mosquito breeding grounds are: standing water, clogged gutters or drains, and yard debris (grass clippings, raked leaves, thick vegetation). Standing water found in trashcan lids, flower pots, buckets, grill covers, etc. is the best place for mosquitoes to breed. They can lay their eggs in as little as a bottle cap of water! It can be very difficult to get rid of every single source of standing water around your yard.
Mosquitoes are also attracted to body odor, body moisture, and carbon dioxide. At times, these are near impossible to avoid in the hot summer months, but unfortunately, this can attract mosquitoes.
When Mosquitoes Bite
When they bite you, it usually leaves an itchy welt behind. They can also spread diseases between animals and humans, as well as from one person to another. When bitten, you may see a small dot at the center of it. The bump will soon become red and hard, with a small amount of swelling. It’s not uncommon to get multiple bites around the same time.
Most reactions to mosquito bites are mild and go away in a few days. They can be more bothersome for children and people with impaired immune systems. In rare cases, you may experience a more severe allergic reaction that causes body aches, headache, and fever.
