published on 30. May 2022

What do tiger mosquitoes look like?

Asian tiger mosquitoes (Aedes albopictus) are relatively small and have a black body with clearly visible white stripes (Figure 1 A, B, C).

It is dark brown and has conspicuously striped legs and abdomen, and there are spots on its wings (Figure 1 D).

Furthermore, the tiger mosquito is smaller than the banded mosquito.
