Caption

Yellow fever mosquito. View of a yellow fever mosquito (Aedes aegypti). This mosquito lives throughout the world in tropical areas, and feeds on blood. Its proboscis is used for penetrating the skin and sucking blood. Only female mosquitoes suck blood and therefore carry disease. A. aegypti transmits filariasis, yellow fever and dengue fever to humans. Mosquito-borne diseases are a major problem throughout the tropics.
