Mosquitos Mosquito

What Are Mosquitos?

The name mosquito comes from a Spanish word meaning "little fly." Many people believe that the reason mosquitos bite humans is because they need to feed on human blood, but this is not true. Mosquitos feed on plant nectar, similarly to bees. Female mosquitos suck blood in order to help with the development of their eggs prior to laying them. Male mosquitos do not feed on blood at all. Although mosquitos can be very annoying to humans and at times dangerous because of their ability to carry and transmit diseases, they play an important role in the ecosystem because they serve as a food source for many organisms.
