Mosquitoes (alternate spelling mosquitoes) are a group of about 3500 species of small insects that are a type of fly (order Diptera). Within that order, they constitute the family Culicidae (from the Latin culex meaning “gnat”). Moreover, the word “mosquito” (formed by mosca and diminutive -ito) is Spanish for “little fly”.
Mosquitoes have a slender segmented body, a pair of wings, three pairs of long hair-like legs, feathery antennae, and elongated mouthparts. Mosquitoes diverged from other insects about 226 million years ago. The Fossils of primitive mosquitoes have been found that are over 90 million years old; fossils similar to modern mosquitoes, 79 million years old; fossils identical to modern mosquitoes, 46 million years old.
The life cycle consists of the egg, larva, pupa, and adult. Eggs are laid on the water surface; they hatch into motile larvae which feed on aquatic algae and organic material; pupae are breathing non-flying primitive adults. Females of most species have tube-like mouthparts called a proboscis. This helps in piercing the skin of the host in order to extract blood, which contains protein and iron needed to produce eggs.
Mosquito feed on Blood!!
Firstly, thousands of mosquito species feed on the blood of various hosts. Like vertebrates, including mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and some fish; and some invertebrates, primarily other arthropods. However, this loss of blood is seldom of any importance to the host. Then the saliva of the mosquito-transmitted to the host with the bite can cause itching and a rash. In addition, many species of mosquitoes inject or ingest (or both) disease-causing organisms with the bite. Thus a vector for the transmission of diseases such as malaria, yellow fever, Chikungunya, West Nile virus, dengue fever, filariasis, Zika virus, and other arboviruses too. In addition, mosquitoes kill more people than any other animal: over 700,000 each year.
