In Georgia, the Asian Tiger mosquito is the most prevalent mosquito we have.  Typically, this mosquito will bite in the early afternoon hours. About the timeSurGuard Exterminating the grill warms up and the kids are playing in the backyard! The female mosquito is the only one that bites and must have a blood meal before her eggs will develop. Eggs are laid near or on the water, depending on the species. The egg-to-adult transition can occur in 7 to 10 days. Once the female mosquito reaches maturity the bites will begin. Most can fly at least 1 mile from their hatching area. Most people will experience itching and swelling after they are bitten. Mosquitoes typically lay their eggs in ditches, ponds, kiddie pools, flower pots, buckets, and various litter and debris.  To help prevent mosquitoes in your immediate surroundings, eliminate any of these natural or manmade harborage areas.  You can also change your dress attire to be better suited for repelling mosquitoes.  Light colored clothing will be less attractive to mosquitoes and should be worn in afternoon adventures in your yard.
