There’s is no denying the Canton, Weymouth and Hingham, MA, areas have experienced their fair share of wet weather lately. In addition, the region has seen cooler-than-usual temperatures for the season almost reminiscent of fall.
The inevitable arrival of warmer weather is right around the corner. With this in mind, residents will be able to finally enjoy all the seasonal outdoor living activities they love. However, there is one caveat; moisture and warm weather equal the perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes. Mosquitoes multiply rapidly and they like to lay their eggs near or within water. Most mosquito eggs hatch within 24-48 hours and this cycle will continue as long as the conditions are right.
Take a look at how one mosquito can equate into one billion mosquitoes in just four short weeks on your untreated property:
In order for a female mosquito to develop viable eggs to facilitate reproduction, she must obtain a sufficient blood meal from a human or another mammal. This single female mosquito will then proceed to lay up to 300 eggs. Mosquitoes can lay up to three batches of eggs during their short lifetime. From here the mosquito has already perpetuated a significant amount of blood-thirsty offspring in which about half, will be other bloodthirsty mosquitoes.
Our equation now includes 150 new female mosquitoes, plus the original matriarch of the brood which brings the total to 151 female mosquitoes. This is where it really gets interesting; the 150 daughters of the original female mosquito will also lay up to 300 eggs each. This brings the total number of mosquitoes up to 45,300, of which half are female.
This now means 22,650 female mosquitoes will once again lay up to 300 eggs each bringing the number during their egg-laying period to 6,795,300. That is almost 7 million mosquitoes brought into your backyard via one female mosquito in just 3 weeks! The same strategy of half being born female will leave us with 3,397,000 females ready to do it all over again.
The answer to this equation results in a whopping 1,319,250,000 mosquitoes from just one female mosquito!
