Why Mosquitoes Are Almost Everywhere

Health,Home Improvement,Environment
Mosquitoes have inhabited the earth for millions of years. There are more than 3,000 different species of mosquitoes. They use to be three times the size of the mosquitoes of today. Imagine taking a bite from one of those gigantic mosquitoes!

Even though the mosquitoes of today are smaller than the ones of the past, they are still troublesome for most of us. About the only place on this earth that is mosquito free is Antarctica. Mosquitoes must have standing water to lay their eggs, such as ponds, swampy areas, streams, drainage areas and other damp, wet areas. Since 98 percent of Antarctica is covered in ice, it doesn't make for a nice breeding ground. So you could pack up your heavy coat, gloves, snow boots, electric blanket and whatever else to keep you warm and move there to escape!

Those of you who have no trouble squashing that dreaded mosquito must know that many more will follow.Female mosquitoes lay between 100 to 300 eggs at a time and an average of 1,000 to 3,000 eggs during their lifespan. The female mosquito will lay her eggs anywhere there is standing, stagnant water. These little baby mosquitoes don't stay cute for long as it quickly develops from an egg to adulthood in just 4 to 7 days. Since a female mosquitoes lifespan is anywhere from 3 to 100 days that gives them plenty of opportunities to bless us with many more little mosquitoes.

Only the female mosquitoes bite.They feast on your blood by inserting their sharp, thin mouthpart called a proboscis into you. For maximum discomfort, before the female mosquito actually draws your blood, she might probe your skin as many as 20 times looking for a small blood vessel to nick. A female mosquito's saliva contains anticoagulant proteins that prevent your blood from clotting, which makes it easier to feed. This blood is essential for the female mosquito to ensure egg development. However, the male mosquitoes feed on plant juices instead.

Those feisty female mosquitoes can't see, but they can detect infrared radiation emitted by warm bodies and by chemical signals from 20 to 35 meters away. So you can run, but you can't hide. Running might not do any good either, since mosquitoes can fly up to an estimated 1 to 1.5 miles an hour.

As heartless as these blood-sucking mosquitoes sound, they do have a place on this earth. If mosquitoes disappeared completely, animals that eat them such as frogs, bats, birds and fish might have trouble getting enough food. So the mosquitoes are a food source for many animals, but they don't need to treat you as a food source, right?
