Female marsh mosquitoes from the genus Anopheles, meanwhile, play host to malaria-causing parasites and transmit the disease to humans during blood meals. And Aedes aegypti, also known as yellow fever mosquito, is known as a vector of well-known viral diseases, such as chikungunya, Zika fever and dengue fever.

Because of the serious threat posed by mosquito-borne diseases, scientific interest in natural larvicides -- particularly those derived from plants -- has ...

Dengue hemorrhagic fever, better known as dengue fever, is one of the primary causes of illness and death in the tropics and subtropics, with over 400 million people infected annually. It's a disease spread by a vector, in this case, A. aegypti -- a mosquito common in the Western hemisphere. While cases of dengue are rare in the contiguous United States, it's endemic to many popular tourist destinations including Puerto Rico, Southeast Asia, and Latin America.

Mosquitoes balance taste with risk: Study finds they can remember your smell, and if you tried to swat them

Still, keep swatting them, the latest study from researchers at Virginia Tech urge us – they'll learn to steer clear of us. That learning curve is also what allows mosquitoes to learn the scents of their hosts – an ability they attributed to dopamine. The paper, which was published in the journal Current Biology, showed this effect also applies to adverse events. When the smell is associated with an unpleasant sensation that they have previously felt – like that of an irritated person ...

GMO mosquitos being released in Florida Keys despite concerns by scientists and residents

https://www.naturalnews.com/2021-04-15-gmo-mosquitoes-being-released-in-florida-keys.html

These mosquitoes have been genetically altered in a way that causes them to pass “self-limiting” genes to offspring. When the modified male mosquitoes breed with wild female mosquitoes, females of the new generation will not be able to survive into adulthood, which has the effect of reducing the overall population of mosquitoes.

The idea behind this project is combating mosquito-borne viruses such as dengue fever and Zika, which are largely transmitted by Aedes aegypti ...
