- Aedes- Otherwise called "floodwater" mosquitoes because flooding accelerates the hatching of their eggs .The Aedes physical noticeable features are abdomens with pointed tips. They include such species as the yellow-fever mosquito (Aedes aegypti) and the Asian tiger (mosquito Aedes albopictus).
They usually attack at dawn and in the early evening. Their bites are painful
- Anopheles- These tend to breed where there are bodies of permanent fresh water. This type of mosquito has abdomens with pointed tips. They include several species, such as the common malaria mosquito (Anopheles quadrimaculatus), that can spread malaria to humans.
- Culex- These tend to breed in quiet, still, standing water. Culex mosquitoes have abdomens with blunt tips. They include several species such as the northern house mosquito (Culex pipiens). They tend to live only a few weeks during the summer months. They persistently bite (preferring birds over humans) and attack at dawn or after dusk. Their bite is painful.
