Caption: Aedes aegypti mosquito stylet, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). The female mosquito feeds by using her modified proboscis to pierce her host's skin and feed on its blood. The stylet is the part of the proboscis used to pierce the skin, and is seen here against a background of blood. The mosquito uses the blood meal for the production of eggs. This species of mosquito is found throughout tropical Africa and in parts of South America. It is a vector for the transmission of yellow fever, chikungunya, dengue fever and zika viruses to humans.
