Aedes cinereus

Aedes cinereus

The larvae of this species prefers shallow woodland pools or margins of large ponds, and because its flight range is limited, the females tend to be found near these areas.  Occasionally, numbers can reach pest levels in the northern states, but generally, Aedes cinereus is only found in sparse numbers even though it is distributed throughout the United States.  Aedes cinereus are considered ankle biters because they usually bite the lower extremities.
