Mosquitoes mostly rest during the day in wet, shaded & sheltered areas including: thick brush/weeds, under sheds/decks, holes in trees, or rock shelters.
Mosquitoes are a member of the fly family. However, they are weak fliers! We always recommend installing fans around areas such as porches, decks, & balconies to deter mosquitoes which can’t handle the wind pressure.
Mosquitoes identify humans/pets by smelling the carbon dioxide in our breath & an array of chemicals we produce. To close in on us, they use their sight & heat sensors.
There are more than 3500 mosquito species found throughout the world. An estimated 175 species are found throughout the US.
