ANOPHELES MOSQUITOES, hang out in the lower levels of thick plants and especially tall grasses. They are active during the evening and night hours. They are referred to as “leg” or “ankle” biters because of their low flying preference. These mosquitoes don’t like the hot, dry sun and prefer the higher humidity at night. They transmit malaria, filariasis and heartworm.

AEDES MOSQUITOES, are daytime (sun-up to sundown) biters but will sometimes bite after dark, when there is illumination from outdoor lights, or when they get indoors. These mosquitoes can normally be found resting in dense shrubbery during the day where the humidity is high and where they are least affected by the hot sun. They transmit Zika, yellow fever, dengue fever and chikungunya.
Corky’s mosquito service was developed by Corky, himself, from his extensive travel and study within the continents of Africa and South America, where mosquito borne illnesses such as Zika, West Nile Virus and Malaria are epidemic. As these diseases spread throughout the U.S., it’s good to learn more about the mosquitoes transmitting them.
CULEX MOSQUITOES, are most active during the few hours after sunset. Domestic and wild birds are preferred hosts, over man, cows, horses or other mammals. They prefer lying in wait for their hosts in the thick leafy areas of trees where birds are found to nest and roost. They can also be found in tree trunks and animal dens. They transmit West Nile virus, encephalitis, filariasis and avian malaria.
