Eggs from mosquitoes are deposited on or near water. Some eggs remain viable for several years without water.Eggs hatch into a larval stage (wrigglers). Larvae feed on microscopic organisms in the water. They molt 4 times and transform to the pupal stage at the last molt. The larval stage may last a week or longer, but the pupal stage usually only lasts two to three days before they adult mosquito emerges. Mosquitoes do not feed during the pupal stage.
