MOSQUITOES INFO

The mosquitoes are pests in many parts of the world. Although a few species are harmless or even useful to humanity, most are a nuisance because they consume blood from living vertebrates, including humans. The females of many species of mosquitoes are blood eating pests. In feeding on blood, some of them transmit extremely harmful human and livestock diseases, such as malaria. Even when it is disease-free, it imparts itchy discomfort to those it bites.

Effective mosquito control relies on knowledge of their foraging and nesting habits.

Common Habitat:

•       Breed in stagnant water sources such as plant axils, roof gutters, drains, tyres, tin cans, flower pots, etc.


Feeding Habit:

•       Males and females feed on nectars and juices.

•       Only females feed on blood because they require blood meals to develop their eggs.


Living Behavior:

•       Active after sunrise and before sunset (Aedes mosquitoes).

•       Active at night (Anopheles and Culex mosquitoes).

•       Prefer dark colours.


Harmful Cause:

•       Transmit various diseases such as malaria, dengue fever, yellow fever, chikungunya, etc.

Getting rid of mosquitoes, both through repelling them and removing sources of them in a small area is something every individual inflicted with mosquito visitors can do. However, you should seek professional expertise to exterminate mosquito infestations successfully.
