Mosquito – Winter

Q: It was 49 degrees outside last week and I swatted a mosquito buzzing me in my living room. Isn’t it a little late for mosquitos around here?

A: Mosquitoes take 10 – 15 days of warm temperatures to grow from egg to adult. My guess is that the one you swatted had hatched but was cooled to dormancy by outdoor temperatures. It might have come inside through an open door or on a holiday plant.
