Mosquitos and their Control

Most common mosquitoes are brown to black with tan or white lines or markings. All pest mosquitoes have a long beak or proboscis that is used for feeding. In addition mosquitoes have three pairs of long, slender legs and are 1/4 to 1/2 inch long (6.4-12.7 mm). Immature mosquitoes are worm-like and called wrigglers because of the way they move in water. They are also 1/4 to 1/2 inch long (6.4-12.7 mm).
