The eye of the tiger mosquito: It once made headlines. Is it still around?

As a Chevy Chase, D.C., resident, I remember that 10 years ago or so, once June 1 rolled around we were always under siege from tiger mosquitoes. I remember throwing mosquito dunks into storm drains and desperately draining every thimbleful of standing water, as well as having to douse myself in repellent just to go outside and pick up the paper. My simple question — where did they all go? I’m loving not having to deal with them, but maybe there’s an article to be written about that?

Where Do Mosquitos Go in the Winter?

Insects are ectothermic, which means they are unable to regulate their own bodily temperatures. Being ectothermic, these creepy crawlies are particularly susceptible to the cold, and winter can often be a fatal time of year for many types of insects. As such, pests have found different ways to not only cope but survive the inevitable cold each year. For mosquitos, their techniques can vary depending on the species of mosquito.
