Mosquitoes, while annoying, and quite deadly, are fascinating creatures. They have survived on this planet longer than most of the animals and insects we have come to know. They have been rumored to be responsible for the death of Alexander the Great. And they are still responsible for more human deaths each year than any other non-human animal on the planet, racking up 750,000 human deaths annually. Knowing as much as we can about this tiny terrorist, helps us develop new ways to protect ourselves and each other.
While many often ponder eliminating all mosquitoes from the planet for good, their fascinating staying power seems to suggest that would be impossible. So what do we do? We continue to research and find new ways to prevent the mosquito bites that can lead to mosquito-borne diseases, without sacrificing the enjoyment of our outdoor spaces.
