Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes are slender, long-legged, winged insects that are 1/8″ – 1/4″ long. They are unlike other members of the fly family in that their wings and bodies are covered with scales and they have long, piercing mouthparts. The larvae are aquatic and have well-developed heads, swollen and un-segmented thoraxes, and eight segmented abdomens that end in an elongated breathing tube.
