Mosquitoes are insects that technically circumvent the label of parasite because they do not live on a host. These blood suckers leech off of other animals and can spread dangerous diseases when feeding.
Where are mosquitoes found?
Mosquitoes rest in tall grass, weeds, and brush near inhabited locations such as homes and other buildings.
Mosquitoes breed in stagnant, standing fresh water oftentimes found around the home.
Only the female mosquito bites to obtain a blood meal.
Female mosquitoes are attracted by heat and carbon dioxide to hosts such as humans, mammals, and birds.
The female mosquito may live as long as three weeks during the summer or several months over the winter in order to lay her eggs in the following spring.
