Did you know mosquitoes are actually a type of fly. It's true, they are. They have a thin body, thin wings and long legs. Another fun fact, only female mosquitoes bite. Male mosquitoes are not equipped with mouthparts that pierce. Instead they only consume nectar like other insects. Female mosquitoes use their mouthparts to puncture skin and feed on human and animal blood. Blood acts as a supplement to a female's diet providing the essential proteins and iron she needs to assist in egg development. She also needs carbohydrates derived from plant nectar.
Mosquitoes love standing water. In fact they breed on or near standing water and only need a small amount in which to lay eggs. Mosquito activity is often found around bird baths, ornamental ponds, buckets, old tires, and gutters. Even kiddie pools could become a breeding site for these pests.
Mosquito bites can be annoying and result in itching, swelling and redness. Mosquitoes have the potential to carry many serious illnesses and diseases. This includes West Nile Virus, malaria, dengue fever, and Zika virus. Domesticated animals may also be exposed to Canine heartworm by mosquitoes.
