How long do mosquitoes live?

Mosquitoes are relatively fragile insects with an adult life span that typically lasts 3-6 weeks. The vast majority meet a violent end by serving as food for birds, dragonflies, and spiders; or are killed by the effects of wind, rain, or drought. Some mosquito species may persist for as long as 5 months if environmental conditions are favorable. Content source: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/document_in652
