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.
