Only Female Mosquitoes Bite Humans
Mosquitos are often seen as a nuisance because they leave behind itchy and sometimes painful bites . . . especially the larger mosquitos.

If they’re scratched at and the skin is exposed, then it can become infected and lead to bigger issues. No one wants that to happen. Prevention and protection is key.
