Mosquitoes generally range in size from 1/8 to 3/4 inch, and there are 176 species in the U.S. Mosquitoes can be dark gray, brown or black in color and have slender bodies and legs. The adult female consumes blood through her long proboscis in order to produce eggs.
Mosquitoes leave irritating bites, but they are more than just a nuisance. In fact, mosquitoes are one of the world's deadliest pests. They can spread dangerous diseases such as West Nile virus, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, dengue fever, malaria, yellow fever and pet heartworms.
