Mosquitoes

Mosquito Identification Guide Across the Mid West and East Coast

What Are Mosquitoes?

Mosquitoes are biting, fly-like insects that feed on human and animal blood with their extended mouthparts. These bloodsuckers take over our outdoor spaces. They're prolific breeders that thrive in warm, humid weather, and are common summertime pests. These aggressive biters, despite their small size, can ruin any time you try to spend outdoors.

Are Mosquitoes Dangerous?

Female mosquitoes bite and feed on blood in order to create healthy eggs that they lay on top of areas of standing water. The mosquito's ability to travel and feed on various hosts, allows them to transmit diseases that make people and our pets ill. These fragile insects deliver multiple, itchy bites that, if scratched at excessively, may become infected.

Diseases spread by mosquitoes in the United Statesinclude:

  • West Nile virus
  • Eastern equine encephalitis
  • Western equine encephalitis
  • St. Louis encephalitis
  • La Crosse

A single female mosquito lays about 300 eggs at a time and thousands of eggs in its life span! It takes around two weeks for eggs to develop into biting, breeding adults depending on environmental conditions, so it is easy to see how quickly mosquitoes can take over a property.
