Some facts about stinging mosquitoes and midges

  • It is only the female mosquito that bites and sucks blood. The females need extra protein to produce their eggs.
  • There are over 3500 species of mosquitoes in the world! Less than 50 species are found in the UK.
  • The male mosquitoes hatch before the females and have a shorter lifespan (a few weeks, while the females can live up to 2 months).
  • Both male and female mosquitoes need energy to fly which they receive from flower nectar.
  • Mosquitoes are most active and hyper at dusk, although there are species which are active around the clock.
  • Mosquito bites are allergic reactions to the saliva from the mosquito.
  • A female mosquito can suck blood on more than one occasion during its lifespan.
  • Mosquitoes are attracted to humans by several different methods including heat, carbon dioxide and various odoriferous substances (it is these factors that today's mosquito traps are trying to mimic artificially to attract mosquitoes and capture them).
  • Mosquitoes, depending on the species, hibernate as eggs, larvae and adult individuals.
  • Female mosquitoes almost exclusively use smell and taste signals to find and identify the appropriate blood hosts.
  • Mosquitoes are more or less specialized and suck blood from cows, horses and humans.
  • There are 300-400 scent signals produced by humans, but mosquitoes seem to only recognize a few of these.
