Dengue mosquito larvae. Larvae of Aedes aegypti mosquitoes. Mosquitoes are a vector (transmitting agent) for many diseases. These ones are the main vector for the viruses that cause dengue fever. Mosquito eggs are laid and hatch into larvae in water. The larvae develop into the winged adults which transmit the dengue viruses as they feed on the blood of mammals, such as humans.
