Why do Mosquitoes Bite?

Adult female mosquitoes bite to obtain a blood meal which provides them the necessary nutrition to produce eggs. When a mosquito bites, she injects saliva containing anticoagulants and other substances into the wound to insure a continuous flow of blood. The welt that occurs is the body’s allergic reaction to the substances found in the mosquito’s saliva.

When are Mosquitoes Most Active?

Different types of mosquitoes have different daily cycles of activity. In general, there are usually one or two periods of flight per day, which can occur during the day, at night, or at dawn and dusk. In other words, mosquitoes can be active all day. Fortunately, a mosquito misting system can provide an invisible mosquito barrier 24/7.
