Pest Library – Mosquitos

Proudly Serving South & North Carolina Since 2017


Mosquitoes are small insects, typically about 1/4 to 3/8 of an inch in length, and are characterized by their slender bodies and long, thin legs.  They have wings and are capable of flying short distances at speeds of up to 1.5 miles per hour.  Mosquitoes are most active at dawn and dusk, and are attracted to heat, light, and carbon dioxide, which is why they are often attracted to humans and animals.

Mosquitoes have a four-stage life cycle that consists of egg, larva, pupa, and adult stages.  The females lay their eggs in water, and the eggs hatch into larvae within a few days.  The larvae then develop into pupae, and after a few days, the adult mosquitoes emerge.  The entire process from egg to adult takes about one week to one month, depending on the temperature and humidity.

Mosquitoes come out during the spring months and are most active at dusk during the summer – just as you are ready to relax outside.  They are a nuisance pest because of their constant biting behavior.  Many people do not experience serious side effects aside from the itchy welt their bite leaves behind.  However, some species of mosquitoes can transmit dangerous pathogens that can cause serious illnesses in
humans.  Because of this, mosquitoes are responsible for more human deaths annually than any other species, which means having mosquito control is vital.
