The adults rest in buildings, caves and hollow trees. It hibernates as an adult in buildings. Larvae live in a variety of aquatic situations including fresh and brackish, open and shaded, but there seems to be a preference for water with a high nitrogen content. As an adult it freely attacks humans as well as cattle to take blood, often causing blisters, but only the female mosquitoes suck blood, the males feed on nectar.
