The Life Cycle Of Mosquitoes
Mosquitoes are odd insects. They are primarily odd because of the way they breed and feed their young. First off, neither males nor female mosquitoes drink blood. Females only gather blood to provide nutrients for their eggs. Next, she looks for a pool of stagnant water to lay these eggs inside. These eggs will hatch if this pool remains undisturbed for four to seven days. These eggs develop through four larvae stages, then to pupa, then to adulthood. Adults then mature within 24 hours and are ready to breed. If there are enough sources of blood and access to breeding grounds on your property, you will have a lot of trouble with different types of mosquitoes.
The Potential Dangers Of A Mosquito Bite
There is no denying that mosquitoes are annoying. What most people do not consider, however, is that these pests can also be dangerous. These pests harm humans by spreading harmful blood-borne diseases like malaria, West Nile virus, and dengue fever. These conditions are most commonly spread in third-world countries where there is little access to medical services. In the United States, outbreaks are quickly addressed by professionals from the CDC and other organizations. Keeping this in mind, there is still the risk of sickness when these pests are around.
To avoid getting sick, you have to find a way to get rid of mosquitoes for good. We will talk more about your options for mosquito control in just a bit.
