Larves dins test



The biological cycle of the tiger mosquito presents stages of egg, larva, pupa, and adult. The immature stages (larvae and pupae) are aquatic, while that of adult is air life.




Unlike other mosquitoes, the tiger does not require much water to breed. Their larvae grow perfectly within small reserves of stagnant water that could be within a flowerpot, a bucket or even in an ashtray.


Females lay eggs, which are invisible to the naked eye, in the internal wall of the containers. When these eggs are covered with water, they hatch and leave the larvae. Subsequently, the larvae become pupae.


It is in these moments when they suffer the last transformation; they leave their wings, then complete the metamorfosi in tiger mosquito. After 48 hours, this mosquito is capable of biting.

In the course of the week, fed with human blood, the female will have to return to put between 80 and 200 eggs of mosquitoes. Half will be females that, in seven days more, have been reared 3,200 tiger mosquitoes.
