Mosquitoes are so much more than just pests that bite you and leave you itching. They can actually pose more serious threats to the health that one should be really concerned about. These pests thrive on water, necessary for them to be able to complete the cycle of their life. For this reason, it is critical that standing water is drained as soon as possible from the surroundings of one’s property. When the weather is warm, it only takes about 3 up to 7 days in order for the mosquito to go from an egg to an adult. This means that they could breed in any water that is stagnating in just a matter of a week. They lay eggs in the water or close to it. As a matter of fact, mosquitoes never develop in the grass of in shrubs, although you will notice them flying around these particular areas at daytime. This is why mosquito control is absolutely necessary.
