New species of mosquitoes have been found. This particular specie doesn't require to be fed with blood at the time of laying eggs. The new breed of mosquitoes has been identified as culex molestus.
Culex molestus are usually found in the infected tanks or in the unused stormwater pipelines. The discovery of the culex molestus has been published in the Journal of Vector Ecology. Cameron Webb is one of the researchers who have been involved in the discovery and the study of culex molestus.
Cameron Webb informed that for the past two years, the researchers have been chasing the new breed of mosquitoes. He further said, "The curious biological trait of this underground-dwelling mosquito shows that people in cities need to take mosquitoes' amazing adaptability into account when designing water storage systems".
It has come to light that the female mosquitoes use a process called autogeny to lay eggs. In this process, the female mosquitoes make use of the nutrition instead of blood for laying eggs. It has been informed that the female mosquitoes don't bite unless and until they have laid eggs. However, soon after laying eggs, the female mosquitoes hunt for blood.
