Mosquitoes are small, flying insects that are attracted to humans and animals. One way to identify a mosquito is by its long, thin body. Mosquitoes also have a proboscis, which is a long, thin tube used for sucking blood. Mosquitoes are usually black or brown, but some species can be green or yellow.
Mosquitoes eat a variety of things, including nectar, fruit juices, and blood. Female mosquitoes need blood to lay eggs. Male mosquitoes do not bite humans or animals because only the female mosquitoes have a proboscis. To get rid of mosquitoes, check out our mosquito services at Insight Pest Solutions!
