How Far Can A Mosquito Travel?


Most Mosquito Species Stay Close To Their Breeding Grounds. Aedes Albopictus (The Tiger Mosquito) & Aedes Aegypti (The Yellow Fever Mosquito) Generally Travel Up To 300 Feet In Search Of A Blood Meal, Sometimes Further On Days With Strong Winds. Culex Salinarius (The Saltmarsh Mosquito) Will Generally Ride The Wind About 25 Miles, However They've Been Recorded Traveling Over 40 Miles Per Birth Cycle During Windy Season With Tropical Storms! Atlanta Gets Saltmarsh Mosquitoes Each Year. Luckily, Different Species Of Mosquitoes Battle Each Other For Breeding Sites, So They Don't Stick Around Long.
