Mosquitoes Management

Habits and Habitat :

Mosquitoes are best known  Vectors  worldwide. Adult females which often feed on blood to help generate their eggs. The lesser-known side is that mosquito adults, males and females, also feed on nectar from flowers. Their immature stages usually are located in standing, preferably stagnant, water. The larvae feed on variety of materials, depending on species. Most consume organic flotsam and tiny aquatic organisms. However, some species are predatory and will consume other mosquitoes. Adult mosquitoes prefer to be most active from dusk until dawn but can become active with sufficient cloud cover or in dark shady areas. Mosquitoes never  prefer to be active in the sunshine since they may desiccate and die.



Reproduction and Life cycle :

In Mosquitoes  males have feathery antennae they use to locate females. After mating  adult females typically seek a blood meal to aid in egg production. She often lays them in standing pools of water, but manmade sources can include bird baths, buckets and even mud puddles. Egg numbers vary from species to species but can be as much as over 100 eggs in a single laying. Mosquitoes  larvae, called wigglers because of their wiggling swimming motion, hatch. They feed until ready to molt into pupae. The pupae are called tumblers, again due to their tumbling motion in the water. Adults emerge from the pupae onto the water surface where their exoskeleton hardens.


How to identify signs of a Mosquito Infestation

Annoying signs of mosquito activity include the buzzing of the females and their bites. People have differing reactions to bites, ranging from mild irritation to intense inflammation and swelling.




Need  of  Mosquito  Control :


Mosquito Management :

Mosquito  acting as Vector and   we  need to control  the  Mosquito  to save the  Human  from  killing diseases.


How to  control  Mosquitoes Mosquito control  in Residence :

Adult Mosquitoes  like to take  rest in Vegetation . Therefore Weeds should not  be allowed to  grow Uncontrolled near Residence .In area where the Heavy   mosquito populations should be  tightly  screened .Screening with 16 mesh to the inch will keep out Mosquitoes but 18 mesh may be necessary for some small species .
