About the Tiger Mosquito

After emerging from the water, male mosquitoes feed on natural juices, such as those in plants. Females are parasitic and seek blood to help provide additional nutrients to her eggs after mating.

Mosquitoes typically stay within a half mile radius of their breeding sites, but some species have been known to fly further for food. They are vectors of disease, capable of sharing bacteria between several hosts.
