What Do Male Mosquitoes Eat If Only Female Mosquitoes Suck Blood?

Male mosquitoes eat fruit and other juicy decomposing items.

Female mosquitoes do not require blood for their own survival, they drink the blood of mammals for the protein and iron to develop eggs.

Most mosquito species feed at dawn or dusk, and rest in a cool place in the heat of the day.

Female mosquitoes hunt their host by detecting carbon dioxide and organic substances from a distance.
