Mosquito Habitats

Mosquitoes will breed in any standing fresh or brackish (salty) water. Certain species prefer different types of water and habitats. Different species will breed in containers, salt marsh, woodland pools, plants (such as bromiliads) and ditches. Mosquitoes will stay nearby their breeding areas and travel limited distances, however they can be carried by wind miles from their breeding habitat. Below are some examples of habitat and a diagram of where you may find mosquitoes breeding around your home. Some examples of mosquito breeding habitat are pictured below:
