Mosquitoes need still freshwater or slightly salty water for their larvae to grow, but different species have evolved to use all different kinds of water. Some grow in ponds, some in puddles, some in tree holes, some in swamps, some in salmarshes. They are most common and diverse in humid habitats but some can even be found in the arctic tundra, active during the brief summer.
