How Long Do Mosquitoes In Atlanta Live?

There are over 3,500 mosquito species in the world. In Georgia, we have at least 43 species. How long a mosquito will live depends on the species and conducive conditions that allow mosquitoes to survive. Let's take a quick and simple look at how long mosquitoes in Atlanta live and discuss how you can use this information to get control of mosquitoes on your Atlanta property.

The Stages Of A Mosquito

Egg. It can take a few days, or several months, for eggs to hatch. In states that are colder than Georgia, some species survive the winter by remaining in their eggs. These eggs often rest on the top of stagnant water in an egg raft or attached to the sides of containers just above the waterline. When water is added, such as when it rains, this triggers the larvae to break free of their eggs.

Larva. A mosquito exists in its larval stage for as little as five days. In this stage, they're often referred to as wrigglers because of the way they move. Wrigglers molt several times before moving to the next stage.

Pupa. A mosquito exists in its pupal stage for two to three days. In this stage, they're often referred to as tumblers. You can probably guess why.

Adult. This is the winged stage of the mosquito. When it takes to the air, females can live as long as two months. Male mosquitoes die off quickly and rarely survive for more than about a week.

Why Choose Tuxedo Mosquito Control?

How To Stop Mosquitoes

The best solution for mosquito control on your property is to address mosquito eggs. When you remove stagnant water resources, you take away the ability of mosquitoes to reproduce. Address conditions that promote the collection of stagnant water, such as clogged gutters or damaged plumbing. Remove containers from your yard. This could be a cup or a bowl, a milk jug, a vase, a potted plant, a bucket, or the surface of an object stored in your backyard. A female mosquito only needs ½ of an inch of water to lay her eggs. These eggs are strong. If a container has water in it and becomes dry, the eggs can stick to the sides throughout the entire winter. In the spring, when the container is filled with water again, it can cause the eggs to hatch. Keep this in mind as you consider breeding sites.
