Pasture mosquitoes Aedes Melanimon and Aedes Nigromaculis females are vicious. Her life span lasting maximum 20 days, can lay up to 150 eggs in her span a couple of times. The eggs are laid single in the moist ground to dry and lay dormant waiting for the flood release. Other species lay their eggs in rafts on surface water if the water dried the raft will not return with water like the pasture species. Blood is easily found in a pasture for protein to lay more eggs.
