Most people know mosquitos as being those irritating pests that leave behind those itchy bites, but they are so much more than that. There are species mosquitos on all 6 continents of the world and they are the most deadly animal on the planet. They are known to carry such diseases as malaria, West Nile virus, Zika virus, and yellow fever. They contract these diseases from the various animals whose blood they suck and then they pass those diseases on.
Female mosquitoes are the ones that are going to cause all the issues for people. They are the ones that feed on the blood of animals and humans because of their need for nutrients so that they can reproduce. The females reproduce quickly and they are always looking for places to lay their eggs for the next generation. They lay their eggs in and around stagnate water sources, depending on the species is where they will lay their eggs. Stagnate water is the coinciding quality amongst all species.
