MOSQUITOES AND AIDS

Mosquitoes do not transmit HIV, the virus responsible for Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). Numerous scientific studies by the World Health Organization, the United States Centers for Disease Control and many other leading researchers have shown that the AIDS virus is not capable of being transmitted by mosquitoes or any other insect family.

ALLERGIES AND INDIRECT HEALTH PROBLEMS

Beyond the serious viral and parasitic diseases, other health problems related to biting mosquitoes do exist. In some cases, the chemicals injected into a human by a biting mosquito can cause a severe allergic reaction. Allergic reactions in some people are so severe they can cause hospitalization. Also, since the bites itch, excessive scratching may cause bacterial infection.
