As an insect, mosquitoes have the following features: slender bodies, long legs and a pair of scaled wings. Another food source for mosquitoes besides the blood of mammals is plant nectar.
It is estimated that there are 3,500 species of mosquitoes across the planet.
Mosquitoes are generally considered to be nocturnal or crepuscular, meaning that they only feed in the evenings or at dawn.
To repel mosquitoes in the outdoors, mosquito repellent sprays are available.
Mosquitoes can detect humans through chemical, visual, AND heat sensors.
Mosquitoes primarily feed during early morning or late dusk.
Mosquitoes can bite and inject their saliva into humans, which spread diseases. Some of the best methods of protection against mosquitoes are hanging nets and placing screens on windows and doors. If you or your home has a problem with mosquitoes, give a pest control company a call.
