Mosquitoes are well known for their pesky bites, but they are very important as vectors of numerous human diseases such as West Nile Virus, malaria, yellow fever and encephalitis. Mosquitoes are normally separated into 3 groups based on where and how they lay their eggs. After a blood meal, a female will lay her eggs on water or in semi-dry places such as moist soil. Controlling mosquitoes starts by controlling and eliminating standing water on site locations.
