Just one female mosquito + your backyard = one billion mosquitoes! You do the mosquito math

Blood filled female mosquito

The presence of one female mosquito can spawn a brood of over one billion mosquitoes in your backyard!

I know it may seem like a stretch, but in absolute truth one female mosquito can spawn over one billion mosquitoes in just 4 short weeks. It would be great if there were only 1 mosquito in your yard. The warm weather and abundant rainfall make our Columbia backyard conditions perfect breeding grounds for mosquitoes. By simple multiplication, the natural order of the mosquito population turns an army of just one female mosquito into an army of over 1 billion mosquitoes! Here is how it works…

Week One

mosquito math week 1

In order for a female mosquito to develop viable eggs to facilitate reproduction she must obtain a sufficient blood meal from a human or other mammal. This single female mosquito will then proceed to lay up to 300 eggs. Mosquitoes can lay up to three batches of eggs during their short lifetime. From here the mosquito has already perpetuated a significant amount of blood-thirsty offspring in which about half, will be other blood thirsty mosquitoes.

Our equation now includes 150 new female mosquitoes, plus the original matriarch of the brood which brings the total to 151 female mosquitoes. This is where it really gets interesting; the 150 daughters of the original female mosquito will also lay up to 300 eggs each. This brings the total number of mosquitoes up to 45,300, of which half are female.

Week Three

mosquito math week 3This now means 22,650 female mosquitoes will once again lay up to 300 eggs each bringing the number during their egg laying period to 6,795,300. That is almost 7 million mosquitoes brought into your backyard via one female mosquito in just 3 weeks! The same strategy of half being born female will leave us with 3,397,000 females ready to do it all over again.

Week Four

mosquito math week 4The sum of all homeowner’s fear will weigh in at a whopping 1,319,250,000 mosquitoes from just one female mosquito! That’s 1 point 3 BILLION! This fact is scarier than fiction!

Mosquito eggs

Just one female mosquito can lay up to 300 eggs at a time, and can do lay up to 3 batches during her lifetime.
