    The lifespan of a mosquito depends on three factors: species, gender and temperature. Generally, female mosquitoes live for two weeks to a month, while male mosquitoes only live for a week. Hotter temperatures may cause mosquitoes to finish their life cycles more rapidly. Female mosquitoes are the ones that feast on your blood.

    The average life span of an adult mosquito depends on the temperature.  Typically, a female will live for 15 to 100 days and a male will live for 15 to 25 days.  The female has a longer life span than the male to allow time for laying eggs and nourishing herself and those eggs with blood.

    Mosquitos have an adult life span of about 2 weeks. However, it may be shorter than that if they are killed, eaten, etc. Some mosquitos may persist for 2-3 months if they are from a species that have only a single generation each year and do not live in a distressing environment. If they hibernate, mosquitos may live for 6-8 months.
