Mosquitoes are the number one enemy of public health because they are vectors of a lot of diseases such as malaria and dengue. That's why it is really important that we eradicate them. Numerous studies have been done against mosquitoes. There are insecticides and organic insecticides to kill them.

If mosquitoes can carry and transmit a virus the size of the Malaria virus, why do they not also carry and transmit a much smaller virus called HIV? Medicos poo poo this idea. If the insects don't transmit and carry Aids then should the filtering mechanism be closely studied?

First off malaria is a parasite, not a virus. The parasite goes developmental stages within the mosquitos gut. The parasite migrates to the mouthparts of the mosquito to be spread to another person. Viruses don't do this.

You first need to do is go to the hospital first as soon as possible then take some antibiotic medicine. First keep in your mind that clean your home from all poor insect control areas.
