In the evening or early morning, people will be attacked by mosquitoes when they go out. If you can’t find it in time, the little thing will suck your blood and leave a swollen bag, maybe one or two viruses. But unless it’s cloudy, you rarely see these insects come out to feed during the day, so where do they go during the day?
First, only female mosquitoes consume blood, and your blood does not provide any nutrition for the mosquito itself. They eat the blood of humans or other animals to nourish their eggs. Yes, your blood is used to breed more mosquitoes.
Once a female mosquito is full of blood, she will rest for a few days and use this time to digest and absorb proteins and iron in the blood to produce amino acids (the basic raw material for yolk protein synthesis) to breed her own eggs.
Although people are often bitten, female mosquitoes are more likely to consume blood from livestock and small mammals if they can choose. Male mosquitoes do not need this food, so they are not in danger of being caught because they eat the blood of large animals. Maybe you’re curious about what mosquitoes eat to meet their nutritional needs. In fact, both male and female mosquitoes can survive by feeding on the nectar of plants, much like bees, small creatures that know the earth is round and can do very complex mathematical calculations.
Most mosquitoes look for food in the evening or at dawn, because the hot and dry days in summer dehydrate them and kill them. In view of this, most mosquitoes rest or rest in shady, wet places during the day, such as trees, grasses and other vegetation spaces. They can also be seen in the daytime to inhabit artificial buildings such as underground ditches, livestock barns or natural shade shelters such as land caves and tree caves.
