Mosquito Breeding Cycle

Mosquito Life Cycle

All mosquitoes have one common requirement—they need water to complete their life cycle. Some mosquitoes lay individual eggs on the sides of tree holes or discarded containers, or in depressions in the ground that will hold water. The eggs can lay dormant for several years. Some eggs will hatch when they are flooded by rainfall. Several flooding and drying cycles are usually required for all of the eggs to hatch that are laid by a particular female mosquito.

Other mosquitoes lay eggs directly on the surface of water. The eggs are attached to one another to form a raft or the individual eggs float on the water. These eggs hatch in 24-48 hours releasing larvae that are commonly called “wrigglers” because you can often see the larvae wriggling up and down from the surface of the water. Generally, the larvae feed on microorganisms and organic material in the water, but some mosquitoes prey on the larvae of other mosquito species and are regarded to be beneficial. In about 7-10 days after eggs hatch, larvae change to the pupal or “tumbler” stage in preparation for adult life. Female mosquitoes begin searching for an animal to feed on several days after emerging from water. Male mosquitoes mate with females one to two days after the females emerge. Males do not bite, but they do feed on plant juices.

Chikungunya, a new mosquito-transmitted virus for which there is no known cure, has spread to four states, including North Carolina.

Females bite and live up to 56 days
Males feed primarily on plant juices and live up to 10 days

Can Mosquitoes Survive a Freeze?

Many believe that mosquitoes die off during a freeze. This not true for all species. It may diminish the population, but not kill off the population. Some species survive by hibernating. Some females may burrow in holes and wait for warmer weather. Others will lay eggs in frozen water and then die. These eggs are preserved and will wait for warmer weather to hatch. So, don’t wait until your property is inundated with mosquitoes. Be proactive and mosquito proof your yard.
Make this a common practice in your home.

Where Do Mosquitoes Go In Fall and Winter?

Question: Where Do Mosquitoes Go in Fall and Winter?

I never see mosquitoes in the winter, but as soon as warm weather returns in spring, they’re biting me. Mosquitoes seem to magically reappear each year. Where do they go during the winter?

Answer:

Believe it or not, the mosquitoes are out there, even in winter. They’re just hiding so we don’t notice them. Absent unseasonably warm weather, mosquitoes remain inactive through the winter months.

Some mosquitoes lay winter hardy eggs which lie dormant in the soil until spring. In late summer or fall, the female mosquito lays her eggs singly in areas where the ground is moist. The eggs hatch when conditions become favorable again, usually in the spring when temperatures begin to rise and sufficient rain falls.

Mosquitoes Are Very Smart

Have you ever seen standing water with mosquito larvae wriggling around in it? Dependent upon the size of the pool of water, Fayetteville mosquitoes can breed in the thousands or even millions. Mosquitoes can breed in as little water as the cap of a bottle. While this fact is scary, the intelligence of these mosquitoes is even scarier.

Mosquito eggs can lay dormant for up to seven years until conditions are right. Once the conditions are right, the mosquito eggs will hatch and the mosquito population will spike. Mosquitoes did not gain the title of being the most deadly animal on the planet by allowing a cold spell to decimate their population.

This is exactly why barrier sprays are so incredibly important. Mosquitoes will not only lay eggs where they will hatch within a couple of days. Mosquitoes seem to have a back up plan of laying their eggs where water will eventually pool and allow for the eggs to hatch. By applying a barrier spray, not only are the mosquitoes eliminated, but so are their eggs and larvae.

Zika Virus and Cumberland County NC

Residents of Cumberland County

The Cumberland County Department of Public Health is aware of the heightened concerns associated with the Zika virus and has created an information hotline number (910.433.3824)to give up-to-date information on the status of Cumberland County and the Zika virus.

Take the time to educate yourself about the symptoms and affects of the Zika Virus. The county is providing free 4 month supplies of Mosquito Dunks to help in the reduction of the mosquito population.

The dunks should be placed in standing water (water you cannot get rid of) by breaking the life cycle and preventing the eggs from maturing into biting adult mosquitoes. Getting a thorough Mosquito Squad Barrier treatment can reduce your mosquito population by 85-90 %. Always remember to rid your property of standing water.

Zika Virus Details

The Zika virus has not been found in mosquitoes in the U.S.-yet, as the mosquito that spreads the zika virus can now be found in 30 states says the CDC. It is transmitted to people primarily through the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito, but it can also be contracted via sexual contact. These are the same mosquitoes that spread Dengue and Chikungunya virus.

These are aggressive daytime biters and also bite at night. Mosquitoes breed when it is 50+ degrees for more than a day or two and can breed in as little as a bottle cap full of water.

Keep Your Yard Free of Standing Water:

This is an important reminder due to the recent rain:

5 T’s

1. TIP: Tip over items in your yard to reduce standing water and help eliminate mosquito breeding areas. Such as sandboxes, toys, and wagons. Also, planting saucers and dog bowls. Other hot spots include gutters and flat roofs

2. TOSS: Remove excess grass, leaves, firewood and clippings from yard ad these areas are ripe for mosquito breeding

3. TURN: Turn over large yard items that could hold water like children’s sandboxes or plastic toys

4. TARPS/REMOVE: If tarps stretched over firewood piles, boats, or sports equipment aren’t taught, they’re holding water. Remove them or keep them pulled tight.

5. TREAT: Utilize Mosquito Squad’s Barrier Spray protection program around the home and yard. Using a barrier treatment reduces the need for spraying DEET containing bug spray on your children. We can eliminate up to 90% of the mosquitoes on a property

Zika Virus Affecting Us Here In NC

Zika virus disease is caused by a virus transmitted by Aedes mosquitoes.
People with Zika virus disease usually have symptoms that can include mild fever, skin rashes, conjunctivitis, muscle and joint pain, malaise or headache. These symptoms normally last for 2-7 days.
There is no specific treatment or vaccine currently available.
The best form of prevention is protection against mosquito bites.
The virus is known to circulate in Africa, the Americas, Asia and the Pacific.

Signs and Symptoms:

The incubation period (the time from exposure to symptoms) of Zika virus disease is not clear, but is likely to be a few days. The symptoms are similar to other arbovirus infections such as dengue, and include fever, skin rashes, conjunctivitis, muscle and joint pain, malaise, and headache. These symptoms are usually mild and last for 2-7 days.

Transmission:

Zika virus is transmitted to people through the bite of an infected mosquito from the Aedes genus, mainly Aedes aegypti in tropical regions. This is the same mosquito that transmits dengue, chikungunya and yellow fever.

5 Confirmed cases in North Carolina. 109 pregnant women awaiting results of possible Zika Virus.

There is no immunity or cure for Zika. The Centers for Disease Control is warning pregnant women or those thinking about becoming pregnant to not travel to areas with known infection.
It can cause birth defects such as microcephaly if pregnant women are infected with the virus.
Brazil is considered to be the epicenter of the Zika outbreak after an alarming number of babies were born with abnormally small heads and brain damage.

Concerns are growing about the Zika virus as it continues to spread across the Americas.

Health officials emphasize the virus is primarily contracted through infected mosquitoes, but evidence suggests it could also be sexually transmitted.

Symptoms include fever, joint and muscle pain:
Johnston said non-pregnant people can suffer relatively mild symptoms like a fever, joint and muscle pain, and redness of the eyes.

Zika virus transmitted through Aedes mosquito. The Zika virus can only be transmitted through one type of mosquito called the Aedes mosquito. The breed is much more aggressive than mosquitoes Southern Californians typically see. They will come into a building. They bite during the day. They fly at lower altitudes so children are at greater risk.

How to protect yourself from Zika virus:
Johnston said there are things you can do to protect yourself from mosquito bites, like wearing long pants and sleeves and eliminating standing water where mosquitoes can breed.

Prevention:

Mosquitoes and their breeding sites pose a significant risk factor for Zika virus infection. Prevention and control relies on reducing mosquitoes through source reduction (removal and modification of breeding sites) and reducing contact between mosquitoes and people.

The 5 T’s Video to Protect Your Family and Pets

Special attention and help should be given to those who may not be able to protect themselves adequately, such as young children, the sick or elderly.

During outbreaks, health authorities may advise that spraying of insecticides be carried out. Insecticides recommended by the WHO Pesticide Evaluation Scheme may also be used as larvicides to treat relatively large water containers.

Travellers should take the basic precautions described above to protect themselves from mosquito bites.

Treatment:

Zika virus disease is usually relatively mild and requires no specific treatment. People sick with Zika virus should get plenty of rest, drink enough fluids, and treat pain and fever with common medicines. If symptoms worsen, they should seek medical care and advice. There is currently no vaccine available.

5 Myths About Mosquitos

Myth No. 1: All mosquitoes bite humans

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are about 3,500 species of mosquitoes. Some feed on plant nectar, some on reptiles, some on birds and others on mammals. Of the species that do bite humans, it is only the females that go for blood — the protein aids in egg production.

Why you really are extra tasty to mosquitoes

Myth No. 2: Mosquitoes are attracted to certain foods, colors and blood types

You may have heard that eating certain foods — such as bananas, beer and garlic — can attract or repel mosquitoes. But Conlon said, “Nothing that you eat affects mosquitoes all that much.”

You can rest assured that wearing dark clothes probably won’t draw mosquitoes to you either. And Conlon said a study on mosquitoes’ attraction to Type O blood was later refuted due to bad statistics.

Harry Savage, chief research entomologist at the CDC, said carbon dioxide and heat are the biggest draws for mosquitoes. Scent can also play a role. Ingredients in your sweat and other skin secretions, which are often genetically determined, can make one person more attractive to a mosquito than another.

Both experts agree that size matters when it comes to being bitten.

Evidence suggests mosquitoes tend to prefer men over women, adults over children and larger people over smaller ones. Conlon said the larger figures likely produce more heat, more carbon dioxide and have more body mass to bite.

Myth No. 3: Pregnancy puts you at risk

If you think that being pregnant makes you a mosquito magnet, you aren’t alone. A study published in 2000 supported the belief that mosquitoes prefer pregnant women.

But the study included only 36 pregnant women and 36 nonpregnant women, and used mosquitoes native to Gambia, a small country in Africa.

Conlon and Savage said the study might be valid, but not for the obvious reason.

Pregnant women give off more heat and carbon dioxide, which our experts said are attractive to mosquitoes. Getting hot and sweaty, and breathing heavily after a workout could potentially make you just as much of a target as a mom-to-be.

Myth No. 4: Citronella plants and candles will protect you

“Citronella is a weak repellent — the oil. You have to crush the leaves,” Conlon said. So that citronella plant on sale at the store? It’s not your best bet for preventing bites.

Citronella candles aren’t going to help much either. A breeze or change of wind direction can blow away any protection.

“To me, citronella only protects the candle,” Savage said.

Conlon said there is no known effective area repellent. The best option is an Environmental Protection Agency-registered repellent for use on the body, such as products that contain the ingredient DEET. The EPA has an online tool for finding products that meet its standards.

Conlon also cautions against natural products claiming to repel mosquitoes. “There really isn’t any evolutionary pressure to produce a (natural) repellent for humans. We are just another protein source on this planet.”

Myth No. 5: The United States is free of mosquito-borne diseases

“No matter where you go in the U.S., there are good vectors (mosquitoes that transmit disease),” Savage said.

The Asian tiger mosquito, common in the Eastern and Central states, is a particular species to watch. It arrived in the United States from Asia in the 1980s, and the species is a documented carrier of dengue fever, yellow fever, chikungunya, dog heartworm and West Nile. Savage said this mosquito can be found in Ohio and Missouri, for example, and along the East Coast.

Malaria is no stranger here either. Malaria can flourish in moderate climates, Conlon said, not just in the tropics. As recent as the late 19th century, half the United States was endemic with the disease, according to the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals.

Of more recent concern to public health experts is the introduction of atypical or non-native viruses, such as West Nile and chikungunya.

Where Do Mosquitoes Go In Fall and Winter Months?

Question: Where Do Mosquitoes Go in Fall and Winter?

I never see mosquitoes in the winter, but as soon as warm weather returns in spring, they’re biting me. Mosquitoes seem to magically reappear each year. Where do they go during the winter?

Answer:

Believe it or not, the mosquitoes are out there, even in winter. They’re just hiding so we don’t notice them. Absent unseasonably warm weather, mosquitoes remain inactive through the winter months.

Some mosquitoes lay winter hardy eggs which lie dormant in the soil until spring. In late summer or fall, the female mosquito lays her eggs singly in areas where the ground is moist. The eggs hatch when conditions become favorable again, usually in the spring when temperatures begin to rise and sufficient rain falls.

LESSON: Keep Your Yard Free of Standing Water

Mosquito-Borne Diseases

West Nile Virus (WNV)

First found in Uganda in 1937, WNV has spread globally. Its flulike symptoms include fever, headache, and body aches. More serious symptoms include disorientation, muscle weakness, neck stiffness and more. Eighty percent of West Nile cases will never display any symptoms.

Encephalitis

Among the most serious condition linked to mosquitoes, encephalitis is the inflammation of the brain. It starts as a virus that usually resolves itself, but in the cases that it worsens, it can invade the central nervous system and cause encephalitis. Eastern Equine encephalitis (EEE) is the most common encephalitis and can affect humans and horses.

Heartworm

This parasitic roundworm infects dogs and other animals. The heartworm larva is transmitted through the bite of a mosquito and proceeds through a variety of life stages.

Reduce standing water to eliminate mosquito threats, including those in children’s sandboxes, wagons or plastic toys; underneath and around downspouts, in plant saucers and dog bowls. Other hot spots include tarps, gutters, and flat roofs.

Mosquitoes Are Smart

Have you ever seen standing water with mosquito larvae wriggling around in it? Dependent upon the size of the pool of water, Fayetteville mosquitoes can breed in the thousands or even millions. Mosquitoes can breed in as little water as the cap of a bottle. While this fact is scary, the intelligence of these mosquitoes is even scarier.

Mosquito eggs can lay dormant for up to seven years until conditions are right. Once the conditions are right, the mosquito eggs will hatch and the mosquito population will spike. Mosquitoes did not gain the title of being the most deadly animal on the planet by allowing a cold spell to decimate their population. This is exactly why barrier sprays are so incredibly important. Mosquitoes will not only lay eggs where they will hatch within a couple of days. Mosquitoes seem to have a back up plan of laying their eggs where water will eventually pool and allow for the eggs to hatch. By applying a barrier spray, not only are the mosquitoes eliminated, but so are their eggs and larvae.

Life Cycle of a Mosquito

Mosquito Life Cycle

All mosquitoes have one common requirement—they need water to complete their life cycle. Some mosquitoes lay individual eggs on the sides of treeholes or discarded containers, or in depressions in the ground that will hold water. The eggs can lay dormant for several years. Some eggs will hatch when they are flooded by rainfall. Several flooding and drying cycles are usually required for all of the eggs to hatch that are laid by a particular female mosquito.

Other mosquitoes lay eggs directly on the surface of water. The eggs are attached to one another to form a raft or the individual eggs float on the water. These eggs hatch in 24-48 hours releasing larvae that are commonly called “wrigglers” because you can often see the larvae wriggling up and down from the surface of the water. Generally, the larvae feed on microorganisms and organic material in the water, but some mosquitoes prey on the larvae of other mosquito species and are regarded to be beneficial. In about 7-10 days after eggs hatch, larvae change to the pupal or “tumbler” stage in preparation for adult life. Female mosquitoes begin searching for an animal to feed on several days after emerging from water. Male mosquitoes mate with females one to two days after the females emerge. Males do not bite, but they do feed on plant juices.

Chikungunya, a new mosquito-transmitted virus for which there is no known cure, has spread to four states, including North Carolina.

The Center for Disease Control is worried it could soon become as prevalent in the United States as the West Nile virus.

The symptoms begin three to seven days after the mosquito bite and usually last for one week. They include fever, headache, rash and severe joint pain in the hands and feet.
