Aedes Aegypti Mosquito Information

Aedes Aegypti Mosquito

The aedes Aegypti mosquito is the primary carrier for viruses that cause Dengue Fever and Yellow Fever.

Often called the "Yellow Fever Mosquito", Aedes Aegypti is an early morning or late afternoon feeder, but will also bite at night under artificial illumination. Human blood is preferred over other animals with ankles as a favorite bite area.

Aedes Aegypti breed in artificial containers (flower pots, rain gutters, bird baths) and eggs can resist desiccation for up to one year. The eggs will hatch when flooded by de-oxygenated water.

Aedes Aegypti fly only a few hundred yards from its breeding area.
