Mosquito District

Our core function is to prevent disease and save lives. Mosquitoes have the greatest public health importance among all insects. Not only because of being a nuisance and blood feeders, but also transmitting disease among humans and animals.

 

Key points to know about mosquitoes

  • Mosquitoes must have water to complete their life cycle.
  • Only seven days are required to complete their life cycle during warm weather.
  • Mosquitoes do not develop in grass or shrubbery, although flying adults frequently rest in these areas.
  • Only the female mosquito bites to obtain a blood meal. The male mosquito lives on plant juices.
  • The female may live as long as three weeks during the summer or may months over the winter
