Mosquito: The Bloodsucker

A mosquito is a tiny flying insect known for their diet of blood and the fact that they leave itchy little bumps on the people they bite. What people might not know is that mosquitoes are considered one of the deadliest creatures on the planet for their notorious habit of carrying and transmitting disease.

Mosquitoes are all over the world and there are approximately 3,000 known species. They first start to emerge during the spring months when things start to warm up and continues through to the fall. However, in some areas where it remains warm year-round there can be mosquitoes all the time. Their favorite time to dine is during dawn and dusk hours, when mosquito control can be prove most effective.

Mosquito Borne Diseases

  • Malaria – these days malaria is not much of a concern for some contries in the world. However, in other parts of the world, this is still a very serious problem. Malaria is a parasite that first presents like a bout of the flu, but then quickly becomes very serious. The Anopheles mosquito is known to carry malaria
  • Dengue Fever – is now very common in Bangladesh. It is very nasty because it is a hemorrhagic, which means it causes lots of bleeding. Outbreaks do happen from time to time as people travel. This disease has been linked to the Aedes aegypti species of mosquito.
  • Zika Virus – the virus has been positively linked to mosquitoes, in particular the A. aegypti and A. albopictus species. The virus tends to cause only very mild symptoms to the person who is first infected such as a fever, headache, muscle aches, a rash and a few other symptoms that disappear quickly. However, once inside a person, it can cause serious problems down the road and has been linked to birth defects such as microcephaly or to illnesses such as Guillain-Barre syndrome.

Basic Mosquito Information

  • Mosquitoes are very weak flyers – This is why if you sit on your front porch and want to avoid mosquito bites you can have a simple fan going. The wind from a fan is enough to prevent mosquitoes from approaching.
  • Only the female mosquito bites people – Males do not have the necessary mouthparts to pierce skin and feed. Female mosquitoes feed on blood to get protein to lay eggs.
  • Mosquito lay eggs in motionless water – Some mosquitoes even lay and hatch eggs in puddles left behind by storms. Mosquitoes will not lay their eggs in moving water however, so adding a fountain or something that moves the water to backyard ponds can prevent mosquitoes from laying eggs there.
  • Mosquitoes are attracted to some people more than others – Mosquitoes find people using their sense of smell and through heat detection. They detect the carbon dioxide we exhale, as well as sweat. Some people have a more attractive smell to them, which is why you could be sitting somewhere getting bite-after-bite and your friend will have no bites.
