Narrator: Did you know there are more than 3,500 different species of mosquitoes, but not all species bite. Of those that do, only the females bite. Males are perfectly fine living off flower nectar. However, females need the protein found in blood to help develop their eggs. Mosquitoes can carry and transmit diseases such as West Nile virus, Zika, and many others. Due to the spread of diseases through mosquito bites, they have rightfully earned their bad reputation. Mosquitoes use the carbon dioxide found in our breath when we exhale as a scent trail leading them to their next meal. Mosquitoes also have heat sensors that they use to identify potential targets.
