Although they can’t regulate their body temperature below 50 degrees Fahrenheit, mosquitoes are still very much alive throughout the winter months. Here’s what you should know about mosquito life cycles and why these pests seem to disappear in the winter. Typically, each life cycle begins when temperatures reach below 50 degrees fahrenheit.
