Mosquito Biology - Stop West Nile Spraying Now

Mosquito Biology Larval Control General Points

Four development stages (egg/larva/pupa/adult) Immature stages need standing water (egg/larva/pupa)

How long from egg to adult? 3 to 5 days for flood water species like Aedes & Ochlerotatus

7 to 10 days for standing water species like Culex 14 to 21 days for rice field species like Anopheles District Species 53 California

species 7 genera, 24 District species Different habitats, behavior, blood sources

Anopheles Rice Fields/Clean Water Sources Mosquito Immature Habitats Agricultural Industrial

Domestic Natural Mosquito Breeding Sites Around the Home/Community Reporting of problems

1-800-429-1022 between 7:00-3:30 Any way you can let us know! When are Mosquitoes Active?

Dusk & Dawn (Culex & Anopheles) Daytime (Aedes & Ochlerotatus) How Long do Mosquitoes live?

Depends on season (winter/summer) and species In summer 2-3 weeks Ochlerotatus and Aedes longer lived than Culex.

How Far can a Mosquito Fly from a Development Site? Flight Range Distance

Species Short Few blocks to a mile

Culex pipiens Oc. sierrensis Medium 3 to 10 miles

Culex tarsalis Long 10 to 40 miles An. freeborni Oc. melanimon
