Most people do start thinking about mosquitoes until they start biting them, which usually starts to happen as soon as warm temperatures return. In the fall, the female mosquito lays her eggs in areas where the ground is moist. Female mosquitoes can lay up to 300 eggs at a time. The eggs may lie dormant in the soil until spring. The eggs hatch when conditions become favorable again when temperatures begin to rise and sufficient rain falls.
When the warm weather returns, if the female mosquito hibernated and has eggs to deposit, the female must find a blood meal. The female needs the protein in blood to help her eggs develop. In the spring, when people reemerge outdoors wearing short sleeves, is exactly the time when newly awakened mosquitoes are out in full force looking for blood. Once a female mosquito has fed, she will rest for a couple of days and then lay her eggs in whatever standing water she can find. Under ideal conditions, females can live about six to eight weeks. Usually, females lay eggs every three days during their adulthood.

So depending on which region you live in and when temperatures begin to rise you will begin to notice the mosquitoes are back.
