Culex Mosquito

Culex Mosquito

Culex mosquito is a common house mosquito and one of the major types that inhabit the planet. It typically obtains blood meals from birds and is therefore not considered too much of a health threat compared to Aedes and Anopheles mosquitoes.

However, it cannot be ignored that this mosquito remains a vector for varying diseases that can be fatal to humans. They include West Nile virus, Japanese encephalitis, Avian malaria, filariasis, St. Louis encephalitis and arbovirus infections.


The females of course require blood feeds to mature eggs before laying them and they will use standing water as their breeding grounds. The males one the other hand solely feed on plant nectar. The mosquitos have brief lives living anywhere between 10 to 14 days.
The bites from the female are itchy and can get painful for some and they mosquitos usually bite after dusk and at dawn. The most notable thing about the mosquito is that it is a weak flier and it has blunt tip on the abdomen.


Female mosquitoes can deposit 100 eggs up to 300 eggs at a go and it only takes as little as two days for the eggs to hatch. The larva lives in water for at least a week before emerging to the surface occasionally to get oxygen. At the pupa phase it floats on the water surface and rests to transform into adult mosquito.

The mosquito remains on the water surface stationary when it enters adult phase until the body has hardened fully and the wings dry and ready for flying. Females then find mates and blood feeds before laying eggs.


Because mosquitos including the culex mosquito can transmit diseases, you really cannot take your chances. To control them start by eliminating all stagnant water around where you are and ensure that you get leaks and damp areas taken care of so that proper drying takes place.
