Living in southeast Texas and being surrounded by many different water ways, Mosquitoes have been and are a nuisance almost year round. In the U.S. there are more than 200 species of mosquitoes. Each species has unique behaviors and bites certain types of animals, but all mosquitoes have the same, four stage life-cycle.
- Egg: After a female mosquito has a blood meal (males do not bite), she lays her eggs in a place where they will be exposed to water – either directly on stagnant water, in a depression, or on the edge of a container where rain water will collect.
- Larva: When water floods the eggs, they hatch. A mosquito larva feeds and lives in the water, growing into the pupa stage.
- Pupa: A mosquito pupa continues to live in water, but does not feed. Internal changes to the pupa occur, and it emerges from the water as an adult mosquito.
- Adult Mosquito: Each will emerge from the water and begin to search for a blood meal.
