Aedine eggs - Ochlerotatus japonicus

Aedine eggs - Ochlerotatus japonicus
Wakefield, Washington County, Rhode Island, USA
July 15, 2006
Size: 1 mm each egg
Note that unlike Culicine mosquitos, Aedine mosquitos lay their eggs singly and not in rafts. These are eggs of Oc. japonicus. She must have laid her eggs sometime late this week. After the great rain we had on July 13th, the water in the container rose and flooded the eggs. This triggers the eggs to hatch.
