How long can a common mosquito survive in a house?

I live in North America and accidentally let a mosquito into my room about 5 days ago. The little bugger is still biting me and finding ways to avoid my attempts to kill it. It is small, and probably belongs to whatever species is most common to North America. How long until it dies of natural causes?

    The average life span of a female mosquito is 3 to 100 days. the male lives 10 to 20 days. and dont worry about ur mosquito it cant live no longer than 3 days in one area especially a house it will drink ur blood and leave mostly it might have left by now. and the mosquito in your house must be another one.

    Well a mosquito survived in space for 18 months with no food and no air so... you're out of luck.
