Frequently Asked Questions About Mosquitoes

What are mosquitoes?

Mosquitoes are a species of small flies that are easily recognized by their thin-waisted bodies, six legs, pair of wings, and elongated mouthparts. Mosquitoes belong to the scientific classification of Culicidae, and they are well known for their habit of biting humans and leaving behind itchy, swollen spots.

Both female and male mosquitoes will drink nectar from plants with the help of their elongated mouths, but only female mosquitoes will bite humans or other mammals. Female mosquitoes utilize these blood meals to nourish their eggs and continue the mosquito lifecycle.

Are mosquitoes dangerous?

Though many people think that mosquitoes are nothing more than a pesky nuisance, infestations of this pest can be quite dangerous. Mosquitoes transmit illnesses through their bites, and there are several diseases you can get from mosquitoes, including the West Nile virus, dengue, chikungunya, and encephalitis.

Why do I have a mosquito problem?

Mosquito problems typically occur on properties that have plenty of standing water for this pest to lay their eggs in, overgrown areas for the mosquitoes to hide in during the heat of the day, and plenty of sweet-smelling flowers to feed on. One of the best ways to get rid of mosquitoes is by evaluating your property for these attractants and removing them when possible.

Where will I find mosquitoes?

Mosquitoes are most commonly found outdoors, hiding around piles of debris, swampy areas, puddles of standing water, and overgrown foliage or long grasses. Indoors, you may see mosquitoes looking for humans and animals to bite or buzzing around windows and doors. Often mosquitoes are most active at dawn and dusk and rest in shady, overgrown areas during the heat of the day.
