The Bad News:
World-wide there are over 3,000 different species of mosquitoes throughout the world; currently 176 species are recognized in the United States.
Mosquitoes, and their smaller and some might add more annoying little brother the 'no-see-um', use exhaled carbon dioxide, body odors and temperature and movement to home in on their victims.
Only female mosquitoes have the mouth parts necessary for sucking blood. When biting with their proboscis, they stab two tubes into the skin: one to inject an enzyme that inhibits blood clotting; the other to suck blood into their bodies.
They use the blood not for their own nourishment but as a source of protein for their eggs. For food, both males and females eat nectar and other plant sugars.
The Good News:
