Aedes Sollicitans Mosquitoes

What are aedes sollicitans mosquitoes?

Aedes sollicitans mosquitoes are also commonly called saltmarsh mosquitoes because they so naturally live around marshy areas. They are medium-sized mosquitoes and have rusty color and white banding around their legs. Like other mosquito species, female Aedes sollicitans require blood meals from people or animals to produce their eggs. Mosquitoes and their ability to bite and spread diseases are why these pests are unwanted on our Massachusetts and New Hampshire properties.

Are aedes sollicitans mosquitoes dangerous?

Mosquitoes are vectors of diseases that make people and our pets ill worldwide. Their ability to spread pathogens and parasites is unmatched, so avoiding contact with these pests as much as possible is a necessity!

Aedes sollicitans play an essential part in the spread of Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE) and dog heartworm. Partnering with a professional to reduce mosquito numbers in your New England yard is the best way to keep your family and pets safe.

Why do I have an aedes sollicitans mosquitoes problem?

Compared to many other mosquitoes, Aedes sollicitans mosquitoes have an extensive flight range — more than 20 miles! Their ability to fly long distances means that it is easy for them to find a way to any property that suits their needs.

A source of standing water, sheltered resting spots, flowering landscape plants, and access to people and animals will attract mosquitoes to any outdoor space.

Where will I find aedes sollicitans mosquitoes?

Outside, you'll find Aedes sollicitans mosquitoes in large populations in ditches, marshes, and grassy areas that collect water. They also thrive in wooded areas and fields and, of course, our yards.

In our yards, they will rest during the middle of the day in areas of tall grass or dense vegetation. Females will lay their eggs in low-lying areas that collect rainwater and bite and feed on the human and animal blood. Male and female mosquitoes will feed on the plant nectar from flowers — a mosquito's primary food source.

Aedes sollicitans mosquitoes are most active during the early morning and late afternoon hours. However, if given the opportunity, they will also bite during the day.
