    Mosquito life cycle Aedes aegypti Adult Eggs Larva Pupa The Aedes mosquitoes have 4 life stages: egg, larva, pupa and adult. Mosquitoes can live and reproduce inside and outside the home. The entire life cycle, from an egg to an adult, takes approximately days. Pupae develop into adult flying mosquitoes in days.   The state’s public health laboratory confirmed Tuesday that a sample of mosquitoes collected in Brighton last week tested positive for the virus, according to .
