The Asian tiger mosquito is an invasive mosquito species. It is known for being an aggressive daytime biter. It is a successful vector for many viruses including West Nile Virus, Dengue and Chikungunya. The mosquito life cycle consists of four stages of development: eggs, larva, pupa, and adult. The mosquito egg, larva, and pupa all require standing water for development. The most effective way to prevent contact with this mosquito is to eliminate areas of standing water around the home. This can include water in children’s toys, flowerpots, birdbaths and other areas where water can collect. Professional pest management professionals have many tools/products available to treat larval habitats and adult mosquito resting areas.
