Mosquitoes can wreak havoc on your yard and your skin. Mosquito bites leave red bumps and an itching sensation which is not uncommon, but they can also transmit diseases and viruses. In the U.S. alone, there are about 200 different types of mosquitoes. While they are different species, they have some commonalities, including their life cycle which consists of the egg, larva, pupa, and adult. You’ll usually find them where there are bodies of standing water.
