Eden Pest Knows Bugs: Female Mosquitoes Bite Humans, Males Don’t

Female mosquitoes do the biting as they require the nutrients found in blood for the development of their eggs. What make the insects dangerous are the potentially deadly diseases that they can transmit to humans, like malaria and the West Nile virus.
