About Mosquito

Male Mosquito
 The mosquito is a common flying insect that is found around the world. There are about 2,800 different species of mosquitoes. Mosquitoes can fly about 1 to 1.5 miles per hour (1,6-2,4 km/hour).

The mosquito females drink blood and the nectar of plants; the males only sip plant nectar. When a female bites, she also injects an anticoagulant (anti-clotting chemical) into the prey to keep the victim's blood flowing. She finds her victims by sight and smell, and also by detecting their warmth. Not all mosquito species bite humans.

The mosquito is often a carrier of diseases, such as malaria, dengue fever, encephalitis, yellow fever, West Nile virus, dog heartworm, and many others. The females, who drink blood, can carry disease from one animal or human to another as they feed. In fact, worldwide, mosquitoes transmit disease to more than 700,000,000 people annually, and will be responsible for the deaths of 1 out of every 17 people currently alive.     

According to reports from the World Health Organization, malaria causes as many as 3,000,000 deaths annually, and 2.5 billion people around the world are at risk from Dengue fever. Each year, there are tens of millions of cases, and up to 95% are children.

Like all insects, the mosquito has a body divided into three parts (head, thorax, and abdomen), a hard exoskeleton, and six long, jointed legs. Mosquitoes also have a pair of veined wings. They have a straw-like proboscis and can only eat liquids.
Anatomy Picture of Adult Female Mosquito
Mosquitos 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 lives for a few weeks.
Mosquito Facts:
  • Only the female bites to obtain a blood meal and that the male feeds on plant juices.
  • Female mosquitos may live as long as three weeks during the summer and many months in the winter.
  • All mosquitoes must have water in which to complete their life cycle.
  • Mosquitoes can fly about 1 to 1.5 miles per hour (1,6-2,4 km/hour).
  • There are about 2,800 different species of mosquitoes.
  • Most mosquitoes remain within 1 mile of their breeding site. A few species may range up to 20 miles or more.
  • There are over 150 described species of mosquitoes from North America. Several species have been accidentally introduced from other parts of the world.
  • Presently, the cues used by mosquitoes to find their hosts are poorly understood. Carbon dioxide (CO2), heat, octenol and light have been shown to be attractants. Other compounds tested such as lactic acid also have proved to attract certain species of biting insects.
  • Mosquito is Spanish for "little fly".
  • To Humans and domestic animals, mosquitoes are a nuisance and a health hazard since mosquitoes can transmit a variety of diseases.
