Physical Characteristics:

Mosquitoes typically measure between 3 to 6 millimeters in length, with slender bodies and long, thin legs. They have a pair of wings covered in scales and a characteristic long proboscis used for feeding on the blood of mammals, birds, and other vertebrates. Female mosquitoes require a blood meal for egg development, while males feed on nectar and other plant juices.

Mosquitoes: Controlling the Pest

Mosquitoes, small midge-like flies of the Culicidae family, are notorious ectoparasites, using tube-shaped mouths to feed on blood. Despite their nuisance, they serve as a vital food source for numerous animals, including birds, bats, and frogs. While humans aren’t their primary target, mosquitoes readily feed on horses, cattle, and birds.
