Mosquito fact #7

Most mosquitoes remain within 1 - 3 miles of their breeding site. Some of them, as the Asian tiger mosquito - Aedes albopictus – fly only about 300 feet away while species developing in salt marshes usually migrate 20 to 40 miles or even around 100 miles under the favorable circumstances. Wind currents are the main mean of long mosquito migrations.
