Why do mosquitoes come out at night?



  1. 0 Votes


    Mosquito behavior varies from species to species- but many are active during dawn and dusk.

    Mosquito’s are not strong flyers and generally prefer calm winds, they are quite vulnerable to the heat and direct sunlight, and they usually prefer the shade.

    Also at these times there are fewer predators- birds are going to sleep and bats are barely waking up- – so this is another reason why they are active at these times, so they avoid being eaten!

    Mosquitoes are active all the time provided the weather is conducive. After all one experiences mosquito bite even in the noon. But because they do not possess strong exoskeleton they tend to ‘disappear’ during the day only to surface at night when the weather is cool.
