  1. There are 3,500 known species of mosquito but most of those don’t bother humans at all, living off plant and fruit nectar.

    It’s only the females from just 6% of species that draw blood from humans – to help them develop their eggs. Of these just half carry parasites that cause human diseases.

    Specicide of 30 types of mosquitoes would save one million lives and only decrease the genetic diversity of the mosquito family by 1%.

    Better wise up, kids.
