mosquitoeses can live in almost any environment, with the exception of extreme cold weather. They favor forests, marshes, tall grasses and weeds, and ground that is wet at least part of the year. Culex and Anopheles mosquitoeses are among the most common permanent water mosquitoeses. Many permanent water mosquitoeses can also breed in containers that collect and hold water, such as wading pools, buckets or toys left outside.
mosquitoeses carry diseases that afflict humans and they also can transmit several diseases and parasites that dogs and horses are very susceptible to. These include dog heart worms, eastern equine encephalitis and West Nile virus.
CONTROL AND MANAGEMENT MEASURES:
An important part of mosquitoes control around homes is making sure that mosquitoeses don't have a place to lay their eggs. Because mosquitoeses need water for two stages of their life cycle, it's important to monitor standing water sources. Aedes mosquitoeses frequently bite indoors, using structural barriers is an important way to reduce the incidence of bites.
