Around three thousand species of Mosquitoes have been identified globally till now, among them, two hundred species do exist in the United States, and almost about sixty species can be found only in Michigan. Aedes, Culex and Anopheles are the three most important among them. Mosquitoes are one of the deadliest insects that are found in almost all places on the earth and they are the carriers of thousands of known and unknown diseases. Mosquitoes such as Anopheles might be the carrier of some parasites mainly in the genus plasmodium, which might be the cause of a serious disease namely malaria.
These parasites generally reproduce inside the body of the mosquito after which when the female mosquito bites and sucks blood these viruses get transmitted into a human body. Due to the carrier of different diseases such as dengue and malaria, mosquitoes have been the cause of many direct and indirect deaths worldwide every year. From the last few decades, mosquito-borne diseases have increased considerably in the US especially for the West Nile virus. People having a weak immune can be dangerously affected by this.
