Found almost anywhere in the world, there are approximately 3,450 species and subspecies of mosquitoes. Mosquitoes breed in aquatic environments, such as ponds, swamps, rice fields and man-made containers.

Mosquitoes are notorious as blood-suckers, feeding on both human and animal blood, though it is only the females that feed on blood. Adult mosquitoes are active and feed at night, hunting for food (blood) by detecting body heat and carbon dioxide.


  • Mosquitoes are common vectors of deadly diseases such as yellow fever, malaria and dengue fever.
  • Dengue fever is a life-threatening disease if left undetected, with symptoms such as severe fever, muscle and joint pains, rashes, vomiting and diarrhea.
  • Even if they’re not carrying diseases, mosquito bites cause itching and irritation that may last for a few days.
