Mosquitoes by Owen Jones

Man's Ancient Enemies!

Mosquitoes - the animal kingdom's greatest killer!


Welcome to "Mosquitoes – Man’s Ancient Enemies," an exploration into the intricate world of these tiny yet notorious insects that have plagued humanity for centuries. As an interested party for many years, I am delighted to guide you through the fascinating journey of understanding mosquitoes, their biology, behavior, and the significant impact they have had on human history.

From the buzzing annoyance of their presence to the deadly diseases they transmit, mosquitoes have left an indelible mark on our lives. This booklet delves into the evolutionary adaptations that have made mosquitoes such efficient vectors of diseases like malaria, dengue fever, Zika virus, and more. We will uncover their life cycles, feeding habits, and the factors that contribute to their thriving populations.

Throughout history, societies have grappled with the challenges posed by mosquitoes, leading to innovations in pest control, public health, and scientific research. We will explore how mosquito-borne diseases have shaped human societies and influenced cultural practices around the world.

Mosquitoes Our Old Enemies

Mankind, without any sexist slurs, meaning all of us, has had many enemies over the millenia. The most prolific of them are probably the smallest ones like viruses and bacteria. Most people cannot do much about these threats except wash their hands, rely on doctors' advice and take medicine, prescribed or otherwise. However, we humans tend to take being attacked by these things as a given. We accept that we are likely to get a cold once or twice a year, the flu or swollen glands.

But we all hate mosquitoes, don't we? It could well be one of the few things that unites all the peoples of the world. Mosquitoes, from the Spanish for 'little flies', are everywhere that humans naturally live. Finnish people say that they have the worst swarms in the world in their northern regions.

Thais would disagree in their rice fields and Africans are surely right when they say that they have it the worst, because millions of Africans die every year from malaria, which is a curable disease these days.

However, no matter who has it the worst, there are precautions that everyone can take to lessen the Lakewood of being bitten by a mosquito, whether that mosquito carries a malarial parasite, other parasites, or not. After all, no one likes hearing the buzz, getting stung or suffering the mild allergic reactions of itching and swelling commonly associated with a mosquito bite.

So, what can or what should you do? Well, the first thing that everyone should try to do is destroy the habitat that mosquitoes breed in. This means, basically, not having stagnant water in the garden. If you live in a household that collects things, in which (rain)water collects then you will have mosquitoes breeding there too. After all, in South America some frogs can breed in the water on a leaf.
