Effectively removing or controlling these annoying pests
The word “mosquito” (formed by mosca and diminutive ito) is Spanish for “little fly”. Mosquitoes are small, midge-like flies. Females of most species, tube-like mouthparts (called a proboscis) pierce the hosts’ skin to consume blood.
Thousands of species feed on the blood of various kinds of hosts, mainly vertebrates, including mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and even some kinds of fish. The saliva of the mosquito often causes an irritating rash that is a serious nuisance. Much more serious though, are the roles of many species of mosquitoes as vectors of diseases. In passing from host to host, some transmit extremely harmful infections such as malaria, yellow fever, West Nile virus, dengue fever, Ross River Fever and dog heart worm rendering it the deadliest animal family in the world.
