What are mosquitoes?

Mosquitoes are a type of fly and are part of the Culicidae family. An insect that bites and feeds on the blood of people and other warm-blooded animals, mosquitoes are unwanted pests. The loud buzzing sound a mosquito’s wings produce often alert a person of their presence just before being bitten. Because of their annoying buzzing, itchy bites, and the serious mosquito-borne illnesses they can spread, mosquitoes can ruin any outdoor event or time spent enjoying your backyard when they arrive.

The main characteristics of mosquitoes include:

  • A thin, oval-shaped body that is typically brown or black; some may have white or other colored markings.
  • Long, extended sharp mouthpart used to pierce the skin of its victim and suck out the blood.
  • Delicate fast-moving wings.
  • Long thin legs that dangle below the body when flying.
  • Only females need a blood meal to produce eggs.
  • Mosquitoes pick-up and transmit the diseases and parasites they carry through their saliva.

Are mosquitoes dangerous?

The most common reaction after being bitten by a mosquito is itching and swelling at the bite site. When a person or animal scratches at the bites, there is always the possibility of a secondary infection developing. 

Labeled as the most dangerous animal in the world, mosquitoes spread deadly and debilitating diseases. While not all mosquitoes are infected with disease, many are, which makes them dangerous and unwanted in our yards and near our families. According to the CDC, some of the other diseases that mosquitoes spread in the United States include:

  • West Nile Virus
  • Chikungunya Virus
  • Dengue Virus
  • Eastern Equine Encephalitis Virus
  • St. Louis Encephalitis

Mosquitoes carry and transmit parasitic heartworms to dogs and cats. Heartworm disease is a serious and life-threatening condition for pets. Work with your pet’s veterinarian to place your pets on heartworm preventative to keep them safe.
