Aedes Vexans Mosquitoes in Merrimack

What Are Aedes Vexans Mosquitoes?

Aedes vexans mosquitoes are one of the most widespread species of mosquitoes living across the world and in our Newburyport service area. Like other types of mosquitoes, their females require blood meals to produce healthy eggs. Aedes vexans mosquitoes like to feed on larger hosts like people and livestock.

Aedes Vexans Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes are a type of true fly and known for their long thin legs, long proboscis they use for feeding on plant nectar and blood, and single pair of wings. Aedes vexans mosquitoes have an abdomen that narrows at the end and thin white bands on the legs; they are typically a brownish color.

Are Aedes Vexans Mosquitoes Dangerous?

The bad news is that Aedes vexans mosquitoes are aggressive human biters, but the good news is that they are less likely to transmit diseases than other types of mosquitoes.

Contact with any mosquito species, however, should always be minimal because while the potential of acquiring a pathogen from this species is low, it is still possible. Also, scratching at the bite sites can lead to the development of a secondary infection.

Why Do I Have an Aedes Vexans Mosquitoes Problem?

Mosquitoes will develop large populations in areas that provide suitable breeding sites, plentiful food sources, and lots of people and animals for the females to feed on. Unfortunately, most of our New Hampshire and Massachusetts yards provide these pests with their basic needs. In the right environmental conditions, mosquitoes can develop from egg to adult in about a week or so, allowing them to take over outdoor spaces in short order.

Where Will I Find Aedes Vexans Mosquitoes?

Aedes vexans mosquitoes are a type of “floodwater” species which means they like to lay their eggs on moist soil in areas above the waterline; once the water level naturally rises or the area floods, the eggs will hatch.

During periods of drought, the eggs can remain dormant but viable for many years, waiting for the water to finally rise — a reason why these mosquitoes can be so difficult to control.

Properties near ponds, marshes, low-lying areas, ditches, densely wooded areas, fields, and flood plains are most likely to experience problems with these mosquitoes.

These mosquitoes are most active between dusk and dawn, but if disturbed from resting areas (foliage), they will also aggressively bite during the day.
