The Life Cycle Of Common Mosquitoes

All mosquitoes in Vero Beach go through four stages of development — egg, larva, pupa, and adult. Eggs are laid by females inside pools of stagnant water. Fun mosquito fact, only females steal blood. They need this blood to provide nutrients for their eggs. After laying the eggs, they take a few days to hatch. The total time from egg to adult is roughly eight to ten days. A mosquito's lifespan is 42 to 56 days or much shorter if an annoyed person slaps them. If you have lots of moisture sites on your property, these pests will expand their populations and become a serious threat.

Why Mosquitoes Are Considered So Dangerous

Doctors are instructed not to use a needle twice. They do this to avoid the spread of harmful blood-borne diseases. Mosquitoes, do not take this same precaution. They happily use their needle nose to draw blood from several different animals and humans. If they pick up a blood-borne disease along the way, they risk spreading it to others through their bites. Some common diseases spread by mosquitoes are dengue fever, malaria, and West Nile virus. The only good news is that these blood-borne diseases are less common in the United States and easier to treat. Infestations still occur, though; it is wise to avoid bites as much as possible. One great way to prevent mosquito bites in Vero Beach is by using some simple DIY strategies.
