Mosquitoes can become a real annoyance because of their constant stinging and buzzing. Aside from their annoyance, these pests are known to carry potentially dangerous pathogens inside them.
They spend their initial lives in standing water until the adult stage where they then fly. There are male and female mosquitoes. Females are the ones that consume blood and lay the eggs. Depending on the species, mosquitoes may lay hundreds of eggs at once. The males do not feed on blood and have “hairy” antennas that are used to find females. Males are usually smaller and live shorter lives.
