What is a "mosquito"?

A mosquito is a small flying insect known for its annoying bites and ability to transmit diseases such as malaria, dengue fever, and Zika virus. Found in various habitats around the world, female mosquitoes require blood meals to reproduce, while males primarily feed on plant nectar. Their buzzing sound and itchy bites make them a nuisance to humans, and their role as disease vectors poses a significant health risk.
