Mosquito Larvae Development
I woul like to know the range in a year during which mosquito larvae are
present in water bodies? For example, how early in the spring and late in
the fall will larvae persist? Thank you very much.
We are unable to answer this for many reasons. The question has different
answers depending upon the mosquito species and the area for which you
live. Wide varieties exist. In my area there are three species and they
are found at different times of the year, depend upon the amount of rain,
temperature and moisture factors, and the numbers are often a factor of
the winter's severity.
