Standing Water and Mosquitoes

The Problem of Standing Water and Mosquitoes Mosquitoes have a natural instinct for finding pockets of standing water no matter where they may be. The reason is that they need water to breed. Much of this insect’s larvae are fertilized in pockets of water where it can be found. Often, these breeding places go unnoticed and before long the number of insects has doubled or tripled within a short period of time, making life outdoors unbearable.

Mosquito bites can cause health problems. Particularly with the influx of so many new species of these insects who are carried from state to state and place to place during shipping. Give a single, impregnated female mosquito an opportunity to find a relatively warm body of water, preferably stagnated water, and their natural instinct to breed can result in up to three hundred eggs being laid and hatched on the surface of water. In the USA alone, there are over 3,000 mosquito species with new species brought in shipping containers aboard transport vehicles and ships. Some mosquito species feed exclusively on human and animal blood as their vectors. Other species feed on plant and honeydew nectars.
