Mosquitoes are not a pleasant guest to have in our home. Aside from buzzing around, causing annoyance, mosquitoes bite and cause skin irritations. Being an anautogenous animal, they rely on blood feeds to reproduce. Female mosquitoes bite on both human and animals.
Generally, mosquitoes can produce about up to 300 eggs per batch (The number of eggs produced varies among species and depend on blood intakes). The life cycle of mosquitoes is 7 – 14 days in tropical countries.
Mosquitoes are known as one of several deadliest animals in the world (estimated of 2.7 million deaths worldwide annually). They are known to transmit diseases such as malaria, dengue fever, yellow fever, filariasis and Japanese encephalitis. Up to November 2019, there are 119 524 of Dengue cases reported in Malaysia, with 164 deaths (sourced from WHO, Southern Pacific Region dated 5th December 2019).
