Mosquitoes increase disease risk in USA – USATODAY.com.

Appearance:

Mosquitoes bite with their mouth parts and have scales on the back of their wings.

Size:

Approximately ½-inch long.

Behavior:

Mosquitoes have caused countless problems for man throughout history. The mosquito feeds on human blood in order to provide nutrients to make eggs. It can leave behind serious health threats such as viruses and other disease-causing pathogens.

Habitat:

Mosquitoes rely on standing water to breed. Mosquitoes that attack people in their own yard are usually breeding close by. Many mosquitoes found around homes are known as “tree hole” mosquitoes. This species does not breed in a natural body of water; rather the female seeks out accumulated water in hollows of trees and such.

Interesting Fact:

Mosquito-borne diseases, such as encephalitis and West Nile Virus, cause many deaths in developing countries.
