    Common Mosquito Questions

    1. What are the key characteristics of mosquitoes?

      Mosquitoes are characterised by having only one set of wings, long, slender legs, and heads that are connected by a unique proboscis. They have small scales covering their bodies and wings. Mosquitoes range in size from 3 mm to 30 mm when fully developed (depending upon the species). About 3,000 distinct species exist. Numerous ecosystems are home to mosquitoes. The majority of the time, you will find adult mosquitoes in or close to stagnant pools of water since they need water sources to lay their eggs. This includes backyard water features including pools, ponds, and birdbaths as well as ditches, woodland pools, and floodwater.

    2. What do mosquitoes feed on?

      Mosquitoes consume fruit, sweet nectar, and other sweet things as food. In order to develop their eggs, female mosquitoes also feed on human blood. Females have a proboscis, a lengthy tube (their mouth), which can penetrate human skin to suck blood and gather nourishment, unlike males, who are just here for reproduction.

    3. What factors attract mosquitoes to humans?

      Mosquitoes are drawn to human sweat, which is why they have such a soft spot for people. Our sweat releases odours that insects find appealing. Human skin bacteria produce gases that mosquitoes can sense, such as lactic acid, uric acid, and ammonia. Mosquito bites are more common on exposed body regions like the wrists and ankles. Female mosquitoes are also able to sense carbon dioxide, which we generate every time we breathe, from a distance of more than 50 metres.

    4. Why are mosquitoes attracted to some people and not others?

      There has always been a tendency for some people to attract mosquitoes more than others. O blood types are twice as likely to be assaulted as A blood types, according to research. Bite risk is about typical for Type B individuals. Approximately 85% of people release a chemical signal that reveals their blood type, compared to 15% of people, and mosquitoes are more drawn to secretors regardless of blood type, according to scientists. Therefore, whether you’ll be attacked at the BBQ depends a lot on your genes!

    5. Do I need professional mosquito control?

      If you have an infestation, Flick’s skilled specialists will visit the trouble spot and identify the reproductive grounds. They will locate and eliminate any sources of standing water, use top-notch pest control solutions, and set up Flying Insect Control systems.

    Common Mosquito Species

    Common Mosquito


    Ranges from 0.125 to 0.75 inches in length. Mosquitoes have three pairs of lengthy legs in addition to one pair of usable wings. distinguishable from other flies by the veins on their wings and the proboscis, a pointed, beak-like sucking mouth.


    Because mosquitoes need water to reproduce, they are frequently found close to sources of standing water. The elimination or treatment of standing water sources is a typical component of pest management measures. To eradicate adult mosquito infestations, insecticides are also used. Particularly in hot climates, it’s critical to address issues rapidly because they are essential disease vectors.


    Females of some mosquito species feed on blood, which is necessary for their ovaries to develop and for the development of their eggs, but many mosquitoes consume sweet nectar and sugary foods. Due to their “vampire” tendencies, they also consume the blood of other mammals, birds, lizards, bats, and other animals in addition to people. Their prefered options are typically horses and birds over people.
