Caption

Asian tiger mosquito (Aedes albopictus) feeding on human blood. The mosquito pierces the skin with the end of its sharp proboscis, through which it then sucks up a blood meal. The Asian tiger mosquito is one of the vectors responsible for transmitting West Nile virus, dengue fever and zika virus. It breeds in water trapped in containers, for example discarded rubber tyres. A. albopictus occurs throughout Asia and has been introduced to North and South America, Europe, Africa and Australia.
