Contrary to popular belief not all mosquitoes require blood to live, as they actually feed on nectar. The male is not blood drinker; it is the female mosquito which requires it in order to lay eggs. Once she lays her eggs, a female mosquito will seek more blood in order to produce more young. She will continue this cycle during her short life span of about two weeks.
