Did You Know?
Only female mosquitoes actually “bite” humans. They drink blood and the nectar of plants but the males only sip plant nectar. The female requires the blood to produce eggs. Her mouthparts are made to pierce the skin and her saliva lubricates the opening, so she can efficiently suck the blood out. She finds her victims by sight and smell, and also by detecting their warmth.
Like all insects, the mosquito has a body divided into three parts (head, thorax, and abdomen), a hard exoskeleton, and six long, jointed legs. Also, they have a pair of veined wings. They have a straw-like proboscis and can only eat liquids.
The mosquito is often a carrier of diseases such as: malaria, dengue fever, encephalitis, yellow fever, West Nile & Zika virus, dog heartworm, and many others. The females can carry disease from one animal or human to another as they feed.
Mosquitoes go through four distinct stages of development during a lifetime, they undergo a complete metamorphosis; the four stages are egg, pupa, larva, and adult. The full life-cycle of a mosquito takes about a month.
After drinking blood, adult females lay a raft of 50 to 400 tiny white eggs in standing water or very slow-moving water. Within a week, the eggs hatch into larvae (sometimes called “wrigglers”) that breathe air through tubes, which they poke above the surface of the water. Larvae eat bits of floating organic matter and each other.
Larvae molt four times as they grow; after the fourth molt, they are called “pupae”. Pupae (also called “tumblers”) also live near the surface of the water, breathing through two horn-like tubes (called siphons) on their back. Pupae don’t eat.
An adult mosquito emerges from a pupa when the skin splits after a couple of days. The adult mosquito lives for only a few weeks.
Mosquitoes: Myths vs. Facts
Both male and female mosquitoes will bite.
Only the female mosquito bites. She uses the protein from the blood she takes to develop her eggs. The male mosquito feeds on nectar from flowers.
Mosquitoes die after taking a blood meal.
Female mosquitoes do not die after they “bite”. If they did, the mosquito population would be harshly reduced and could even lead to extinction of the species.
Bats can control mosquito populations.
Bats are indiscriminate feeders. They don’t concentrate on mosquitoes and very rarely have any substantial effect on the mosquito population.
USA is free of mosquito-borne diseases.
While not common, there are still cases of Malaria in the USA. A more recent concern is the introduction of non-native viruses, such as Zika, West Nile and Chikungunya.
