Mosquitoes are most active in the early summer through fall in most parts of the country, and they may remain active throughout the year in warmer southern states. They thrive in moist, dark environments and tend to be more active during dusk and nighttime.

Do you know that?

Female mosquitoes are the ones that bite, as they require the protein in blood to develop their eggs, which is composed of amino acids.

Ugh, mosquitoes. The insect that probably needs no introduction.

These pesky insects can develop from an egg to an adult in less than a week. That means a small mosquito problem can become quite big—and annoying—rather quickly. Once fully grown, mosquitoes can reach up to one-half inch long. Male mosquitoes, interestingly enough, do not have the ability to pierce your skin; only female mosquitoes have the ability to do so.

Are mosquitoes dangerous? 

While most mosquito bites are harmless, mosquitoes can carry serious diseases that can make people and animals very sick. With West Nile and Zika, mosquitoes can even carry deadly illnesses.

Where do you find mosquitoes? 

Mosquitoes are usually most problematic around areas of standing water, such as drainage ditches, marshes, wading pools, tall grass, flowering vegetation and wooded areas. They also like to gather in debris, such as stacks of sticks, compost piles or clogged drains.

They live and breed outdoors and tend to be most active at dawn and night.

What causes a mosquito problem? 

If they’re in your house, that’s likely because they’re entering through a broken or cracked window or door.

Otherwise, these pesky insects are extremely common outside, especially in areas near water.
