Mosquitoes

The Mosquito’s reproduction cycle relies on a water habitat as the first stage is completely in the water.

 Australia has more than 300 different species of mosquitoes. They are a small blood sucking insects belonging to the family of flies called Culicidae.

The adult female will return to the water to lay her eggs. Mosquitoes then stay within a short distance of their original breeding place hence mosquitoes being more of a problem along the edges of wetlands, lakes and rivers. On average a female mosquito will live for about 3 weeks (3weeks to long I say).  Males generally live a bit shorter than the female.

They are attracted to people and animals by various stimuli including body odours, carbon dioxide, movement and heat. The female will then probe the skin for a blood capillary, injecting a small amount of saliva containing chemicals which prevent the person or animal’s blood from clotting.Both male and female will feed on plant fluids and nectar but only the female will seek a blood meal as a source of protein for reproduction.

After feeding on blood the female will find a place to rest, digesting their meal and developing eggs.

The larvae’s development depends on the availability of food and the temparature but generally takes one to two weeks.

They develop into a pupa (tumbler) from which the adult mosquito hatches about two days later to feed, mate and begin the breeding cycle once again.
