Mosquito Math

Just one female mosquito + your backyard = one billion mosquitoes! You do the mosquito math.

Did you know one female mosquito can reproduce over one billion mosquitoes in just 4 short weeks? It would be great if there were only 1 mosquito in your yard. The warm weather and abundant rainfall make our backyard conditions perfect breeding grounds for mosquitoes. By simple multiplication, the natural order of the mosquito population turns an army of just one female mosquito into an army of over 1 billion mosquitoes! Here is how it works…

In order for a female mosquito to develop viable eggs to facilitate reproduction she must obtain a sufficient blood meal from a human or other mammal. This single female mosquito will then proceed to lay up to 300 eggs. Mosquitoes can lay up to three batches of eggs during their short lifetime. From here the mosquito has already perpetuated a significant amount of blood-thirsty offspring in which about half, will be other blood thirsty mosquitoes.

Our equation now includes 150 new female mosquitoes, plus the original matriarch of the brood which brings the total to 151 female mosquitoes. This is where it really gets interesting; the 150 daughters of the original female mosquito will also lay up to 300 eggs each. This brings the total number of mosquitoes up to 45,300. Half will be female.

This now means 22,650 female mosquitoes will once again lay up to 300 eggs each bringing the number during their egg laying period to 6,795,300. Nearly 7 million mosquitoes brought into your backyard by one female mosquito in just 3 weeks! The same strategy of half being born female will leave us with 3,397,000 females ready to do it all over again.

In just four weeks the mosquito population has reached 1.3 Billion Mosquitoes!
