The adult mosquitoes are long-legged and slender two-winged insects. They complete metamorphosis with 4 stages of development – Eggs, larva, pupa and finally the adult stage. The first 3 stages of the mosquito are aquatic whereas the adult is an active flying insect. Typically, it takes about 7-14 days for a mosquito to develop from egg to adult, but it is also dependent on the species itself as some may take longer or shorter.
Female mosquitos require a blood meal for them to lay fertile eggs. They are attracted to their hosts by odour, moisture, temperature, etc.
Locally, the main mosquitoes are:
- Culex mosquitoes
- Aedes Mosquitoes
Dark, cool and humid places are the best breeding places for mosquitoes and they can be active either in the day or night. This can pose a risk for us as they can transmit numerous diseases such as dengue fever, malaria, etc.
