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.

What is the lifecycle of a Tick?
Ticks have four stages to their life cycle: egg, larvae, nymph, and adult, taking up to three years to fully develop. Throughout these years, most ticks feed on three different hosts. Once the eggs hatch, they become larvae and the larvae feed on the first host, which is typically a bird or a rodent, for several days before they detach and fall back on the ground. The larvae then transform into nymphs, which become active in the spring and begin to look for their second host – a rodent, pet, or human and feed, repeating the process of detachment and molting. Once the tick enters the final stage of its life cycle, which occurs during the fall, both male and female ticks will look to feed on their third host, usually a rodent, deer, dog, cat, or human. Once the tick is well-fed, it detaches, falls to the ground, and the males die. Female ticks, however, live through the winter and lay eggs in the spring before dying, completing the life cycle of a female tick.
What is the lifecycle of a Flea?
Fleas undergo four stages in their life cycle: eggs, larval, pupal, and adult. They lay between four to eight eggs, which fall to the ground and hatch within one to twelve days. The larval stage lasts from four to eighteen days, and then the flea will enter the pupal stage. The pupal stage can last anywhere from three days to one year. Once the flea emerges from the pupal stage, they become adults and begin searching for food. Fleas will likely become adults more rapidly when in warmer
