Malaria mosquito. Illustration showing a mosquito on human skin, sucking blood. It has inserted its modified proboscis (red) into a superficial blood vessel. Mosquitoes transmit diseases such as malaria, viral encephalitis, yellow fever, and filariasis. Malaria is a major health problem in Africa, Asia, India & South America. Malaria causes a severe fever & can lead to sometimes fatal complications affecting the liver, brain & blood. Preventative measures against mosquitoes are important, as the malaria parasites are developing resistance to anti-malarial drugs. Measures include using mosquito nets, protective clothing, insecticides & release of sterile males.
