Caption: Aedes aegypti mosquito feeding on skin. Footage of the mosquito Aedes aegypti, feeding on human skin. Female mosquitoes feed on vertebrate blood to produce their eggs. If the mosquito is infected with a parasite or other pathogen, the saliva will transmit this to her host. The abdomen swells and turns red as the mosquito feeds on the blood of her human host. The Aedes aegypti mosquito, found throughout tropical Africa and in parts of South America, is a vector of Zika fever, yellow fever and dengue fever.
