Mosquitoes breed fast, needing only 10 to 14 days to mature into an adult. Once they are fully grown, they'll do whatever it takes to get a meal - flying as far as 14 miles to satiate their craving. While mosquitoes most often leave behind itchy, red bumps on their victims, they can also spread diseases like West Nile Virus and Encephalitis in humans and transmit heartworms to the family pets.
