Mosquitoes. No one likes these pests. They are annoying at the least, and deadly at their worst. They can carry disease from far away countries. When a person is bitten by an infected mosquito and becomes a carrier of that disease, and then travels to another country and another mosquito bites that person, that new mosquito now carries the disease from that other country. This is the unfortunate scenario of disease spreading mosquitoes. Thanks to the advancement of transportation people can now travel throughout the world and unknowingly are spreading these diseases.
Some of the deadliest diseases brought to us by mosquitoes are: Yellow Fever, West Nile Virus, Malaria, Encephalitis (disease of the brain) and the Zika Virus . There are over 3000 different species of mosquitoes around the world. The females suck blood from animals and humans to get protein for her eggs. When she bites, she injects saliva with a blood thinner and numbing substance. This causes the itching we often experience. She then draws the blood out.
In humid and warmer areas, mosquitoes flourish year‐round. If they aren't feeding on us, they will eventually. We need to prevent the mosquitoes from living long enough to bite us. Experts tell us to empty water around our home because the females lay their eggs there. They have four stages of the life cycle and until they become adults, they live in water. They like to feed at dawn and dusk. Avoid being outdoors during these times and wear repellent if you do venture outside.
It is true that certain people are more attractive to mosquitoes than others. Body odor and the carbon dioxide we emit when breathing are what these insects are attracted to. Being attractive isn't always a good thing!
