Mosquitoes cause more human suffering than any other organism. Over one million people die from mosquito-borne diseases every year. Mosquito vectored diseases include protozoan diseases, i.e. malaria, filarial diseases such as dog heartworm, and viruses such as West Nile, Zika, dengue, encephalitis and yellow fever. Many kinds of mosquitoes do not spread disease, but they leave behind itchy, puffy “bites.”
