What is the lifecycle of a Mosquito?
Female mosquitoes lay hundreds of eggs every few days during their lifetime, directly on or near water. Water is required for the eggs to hatch, which typically happens within 48 hours. Then, the larvae will emerge and live in the water, coming to the surface to breathe, molting their skin four times and growing larger after each molt. After undergoing four stages of molting, the larvae become pupae, which are the teenage stage of the life cycle and the non-feeding era. During this stage, the adult mosquito begins to develop, which can take up to four days, depending on the temperature of the water. Adult mosquitoes rest on the water with two concerns; mating and feeding. Once the body is completely dry and hardened, and the wings have fully opened, they are able to fly. Males locate females by the sound of their wings. Once they mate, males live three to five days and females live considerably longer, upwards of one to two months.
