Mosquitoes In Wilmington, NC

What are mosquitoes?

Mosquitoes are tiny fly-like insects and are described as biting pests. It is the female mosquitoes that “bite” and feed on the blood of people and animals to get the protein needed to make viable eggs. Mosquitoes are common Wilmginton pests and are usually found living and breeding together in large numbers. Adults have a narrow oval-shaped body, long legs that hang down when in flight, and a long thin proboscis (nose) they use for feeding. Their one pair of wings has a covering of fine hair.

Where will I find mosquitoes?

Mosquitoes breed on properties that have or are near sources of standing water. Ponds, marshes, wooded areas, drainage ditches, buckets, flower pots, wheelbarrows, and wading pools attract mosquitoes.

Both male and female mosquitoes feed on plant nectar as their primary food source, so lots of flowering vegetation also attract large populations of mosquitoes.

Mosquitoes are most active during dusk and dawn when the weather is cooler. During the heat of the day, they rest on properties with lots of overgrown vegetation and tall grasses.
