Aedes aegypti mosquitoes like climates that are subtropical and tropical; they come from Africa and has made a home in the United States.
These mosquitoes live in tropical, subtropical, and in some temperate climates. They are the main type of mosquito that spread Zika, dengue, chikungunya, and other viruses. Because Ae. aegypti mosquitoes live near and prefer to feed on people, they are more likely to spread these viruses than other types of mosquitoes.
Only two are able to transmit dengue. Aedes aegypti is the main mosquito species that transmits dengue in Singapore. Aedes albopictus can transmit dengue, but not as efficiently as Aedes aegypti. Both species are capable of transmitting Chikungunya and Zika viruses
The adult life span can range from two weeks to a month depending on environmental conditions. The life cycle of Aedes aegypti can be completed within one-and-a-half to three weeks (see figure 1). After taking a blood meal, female Aedes aegypti mosquitos produce on average 100 to 200 eggs per batch.
Aedes aegypti is a vector for transmitting several tropical fevers. Only the female bites for blood, which she needs to mature her eggs. To find a host, these mosquitoes are attracted to chemical compounds emitted by mammals, including ammonia, carbon dioxide, lactic acid, and octenol
