Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes: Mosquitoes it is only female mosquitoes that seek animals out for their blood, which they need in order to reproduce.
Standard Common Name: Mosquitoes
Number of Species: 350 Size ranged 4mm – 6mm.
Distribution: Mosquitoes are found throughout Australia.
Habitat: Mosquitoes often live in urban areas.
Feeding and Diet: The female mosquitoes eat animal blood.
Life cycle: A few days after a blood meal, female mosquitoes lay about 200 eggs on any water surface-even small water bodies such as bottom trays of pot plants are suitable. Most species produce egg ” rafts” where many eggs are cemented together, floating until they hatch after two to three days. Although they live in water, the larvae known as ” wrigglers” breathe air and come equipped with their own snorkelling equipment. Attached to their abdomen is a siphon, which they use when they come to the surface to breathe. Females live for about a month while males often live for only a week, during which they feed on nectar.

Big Thank You To Larry At Total Control

5/5 stars
I had an issue with bee's coming in through the light fixtures in my bathroom. I called Larry and since he's local he came shortly after. Larry dealt with the problem quickly and professionally and was very knowledgable and informative. Larry also guarantees his work and will handle the problem should it arise again, however I don't think that will be necessary as its been months and I haven't seen a single bee since. Big thank you to Larry at Total Control.
