Do all mosquitoes need water to reproduce?



  1. 0 Votes

    Adult female mosquitoes do need water to lay their eggs.  They do so in any standing water.  This can be a lake, a puddle or even an artificial water container such as a jar or a bucket.  The first three stages are aquatic and 5-14 days, depending on the species and the ambient temperature; eggs hatch to become larvae, then pupae.  Adults emerge from the pupa as it floats at the water surface.

    Immature mosquitoes, eggs, larvae, and pupae, are completely aquatic, and mosquitoes need to lay these eggs in fresh, stagnant water
