Mosquitoes belong to the same group as flies. As such, they have only one pair of wings. They usually have long, thin legs and a head with a prominent proboscis. The body of mosquitoes and wings are often covered with tiny scales. The size of adult mosquitoes can vary from 3 to 9 mm.
Female mosquitoes often feed on blood to help generate their eggs. The lesser known side is that adult mosquitoes, both male, and female, also feed on nectar from flowers. The larvae feed on different materials, depending on the species.
Most consume organic remains and small aquatic organisms. However, some species are predatory and feed on other mosquitoes. Adult mosquitoes prefer to be more active from dusk to dawn but may become active in areas with sufficient cloud cover or in dark areas. They do not like to be active in the sunlight, as they can dry out and die.
