About The Mosquito Life Cycle

There are over 3,000 different species of mosquitoes in the world, and they go through a four-stage life cycle. Larvae emerge from eggs and become pupa while they develop into adulthood. These insects emerge from their developmental phases as adults in newly-formed bodies that enable them to fly.

Female mosquitoes in Pasadena lay their eggs in water, which can hatch from a few days to months later. Regardless of when they hatch, they do so when fully submerged. Larvae can become pupae in five days and adults in two or three days.

The first three stages occur in water, and mosquitoes fly when they become adults. Only females bite people and animals, feeding on their blood, but eliminating all mosquitoes can prevent infestations.

Mosquitoes Are The Deadliest Animals In The World

Most mosquitoes are nuisances and don't pose health risks to people. However, some species can spread potentially dangerous pathogens that can cause severe illnesses. Their numbers and ability to spread diseases make them the deadliest creatures on the planet.

It might be surprising to many that mosquitoes are problematic. Their bites usually don’t hurt, only leaving a tiny welt. But there are various diseases spread by mosquitoes, including:

  • West Nile virus
  • Dengue
  • Chikungunya
  • Tularemia

The most concerning illnesses spread by mosquitoes are malaria and the Zika virus. Though not in the United States, nearly half of the world is susceptible to these illnesses through mosquito bites. Some pathogens spread by mosquitoes can lead to encephalitis, meningitis, and microcephaly, potentially making them fatal. The best way to prevent these problems is to get rid of mosquitoes in your yard.

The Hassles With Trying To Control Mosquitoes On Your Own

Many people assume they can control mosquitoes by removing common attractants. Like all pests, mosquitoes invade attractive properties, and limiting these factors can reduce the number around your home. But it's not always easy.

In addition to people, mosquitoes desire standing water to breed and shady yards to protect them from direct sunlight. Some natural ways to keep mosquitoes away include:

  • Clean standing water off of your property
  • Mow your lawn regularly
  • Clear excessive brush or vegetation
  • Replace the water in your water features weekly

The problem is that these pests are tiny, so they don’t need much water or shade. It’s hard to clear your yard enough that mosquitoes can’t benefit. You might continuously remove brush, debris, and water and still have mosquitoes.
