How to identify 

Physical Appearance: this mosquito has narrow white bands on the base of each leg segment, and the base of most abdominal segments is adorned with white-scaled bands, indented in the middle so that they look like the letter “B” when viewed sideways.

Feeding Habits:Some inland floodwater mosquito species are active during the daytime, and they may bite humans and animals. This behavior is different from other mosquito species that primarily feed during the evening or night.

Disease Transmission: Depending on the species, some inland floodwater mosquitoes can serve as vectors for diseases like West Nile virus, Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE), and other arboviruses. They can transmit these diseases to humans and animals through their bites.
