  3. 3. http://www.flitrapdirect.com Mosquitoes are the most distinctive among the insects that act as vectors in spreading diseases to humans and other animals. Mosquitoes are considered as the supreme scourge of any insect pest. According to the statistics, mosquitoes transmit diseases to more than 69 million people every year. The list of diseases that mosquitoes transmit includes malaria, yellow fever, dengue fever, ross river fever, heartworms in dogs, viral encephalitis in horses and more. Mosquitoes show some characteristics that are moderately exclusive from other insects. The most unique characteristic is that they contain different sensors which aid them in finding host.
  4. 4. http://www.flitrapdirect.com Body features that make mosquitoes unique from other insects Chemical sensors: These sensors help mosquitoes in sensing carbon dioxide and lactic acid from up to 100 feet away. These are the gases that mammals and birds give off as a part of their normal breathing. Certain chemicals in sweat also attract mosquitoes and it is due to this reason that people who sweat less get bitten less by mosquitoes. Visual sensors: Mosquitoes using these sensors are able to see and target the people wearing clothing that contrasts with the background, and especially when they move while wearing that clothing. If something is moving, mosquitoes consider it as alive, take their chances and zero in on the prey. Heat sensors: These special sensors help mosquitoes in detecting heat, and as a result, warm-blooded humans and animals are easily found once they get close enough. Researches have shown that if a mosquito is within 10 feet of a living body then it can feel body heat. The mosquito’s heat sensor is more accurate when the humidity is high.
  5. 5. http://www.flitrapdirect.com Some other features that make mosquitoes exclusive from other insects - Mosquitoes can inhabit and breed in almost any habitat on earth. They can be found in any region whether it’s Arctic Circle or tropic region. - Unlike other insects, both male and female mosquitoes don’t feed on the same type of feed. Female mosquito feeds on animal blood-feeding while the male are nectar feeders. - During the mating season mosquitoes make a buzzing noise which male mosquitoes can hear each other from a distance of about 3.3 feet. - Each species of mosquitoes produce a unique buzzing noise. Female mosquitoes use the buzzing sound to attract male mosquitoes for mating.
