All mosquitoes need water for their development and typically the adult female lays her eggs in standing water. The eggs become larva then the larva become the blood sucking adults we are familiar with.
Preparing for the winter months is a little more complex and mosquitoes have different ways to ensure survival. In late summer or early fall, adult females will lay their eggs in moist soil or standing water. Some of these eggs remain as eggs through the winter while some will develop to the larval stage and survive the winter in this stage.
