How Well Do You Know Mosquitoes?
A mosquito, in Spanish, would mean a ‘little fly’. Quite literally, that is what they are, small, midget-like flies, but don’t go by their deceptive looks. Belonging to the family Culicidae, females of most of the species use long tube-like organisms (in biological terms, a proboscis) to penetrate the host’s skin and suck blood. The size of a grown up mosquito can vary from 3mm to 9mm. The adult females use host blood to lay eggs and reproduce and help in carrying nectar of flowers.
Common Species of Mosquitoes Found in Australia
The most commonly found mosquito species are Anopheles, Aedes, Culex, Mansonia, Culiseta and Coquillettidia.
Signs of Mosquito Bites
The female mosquito consumes blood out of the host’s skin. However, most of the times, the loss of blood is minimal to the host, though mosquito bites leave inflammation and itching rashes. But the more serious thing is the diseases that they spread.
More Severe Effects
Mosquitoes are vectors of fatal disease-causing viruses, and they carry and spread these viruses from one person to another. The major viral diseases transmitted by mosquitoes are yellow fever, dengue, malaria, chikungunya, Australian encephalitis, Ross River virus disease, Burmah Forest virus disease and several kinds of flues. Mosquitoes are estimated to have affected more than 700 million people around Asia, Africa, South and Central America. Per year, not less than 2 million people die of mosquito transmitted diseases.
To bring the mosquitoes under control, and to protect the individuals in disease-inflicted areas, sophisticated methods are used by local governing bodies of those regions, which include but are not limited to, vector extermination, disease prevention, vaccination and usage of prophylactic drugs, insecticides and spray repellents.
Dengue as a mosquito-borne disease has the most impact in the medical history of mankind and Dengue epidemics have reportedly killed millions of people around the world in the past. The symptoms include a mild fever, headache, and fatigue, leading to a potentially life-threatening hemorrhage.
Among other serious diseases, there is Australian encephalitis or Murray Valley encephalitis caused by infection with Kunjin virus. Symptoms include short-term to permanent neurological disorders, and things might go from trivial to fatal within a few days if not treated properly.
Ross River virus disease is one of the most commonly found mosquito-borne diseases in Australia, especially the Southeast region where hundreds of cases are reported each year. RR Virus infection could show in the form of mild fever with itching rashes but could later develop in arthritis. Malaria also persists to be a major threat in all states of Australia.

Do-it- yourself enthusiasm is plausible, but not necessarily always effective. Marketed pesticides for consumer purchase often fall short of the efficiency needed to bring mosquitoes under control.
