Along with Corona, the lack of frames for children, temperatures in the sky and a daily feeling of helplessness – most of us also have to deal with another annoying and buzzing problem: the mosquitoes. Undoubtedly the most oppressive insects that violate our sleep and scratch our lives. We did not think they deserved a special day on the calendar, but of course we do not set such days. August 20 is International Mosquito Day – the purpose of which is to commemorate the discovery of the British physician Ronald Ross, who discovered in 1897 that mosquitoes transmit malaria among humans. Here are some interesting things to know about the annoying stings.

In a photograph taken by French scientists under a microscope, at the Pasteur Institute in Paris (France), the mosquito’s oral organs can be seen penetrating under the skin of a mouse. Mosquitoes feed on a buoy but in most species, females suck blood to obtain the proteins needed to form eggs. They suck blood for an average of about four minutes, and sometimes they are so brutal that the blood vessels collapse. Their flexible mouth organ, which most of us think is no more sophisticated than an ultra.thin straw, bends in all directions and rummages through the cells of the poor rodent.

In the documentation it can be seen that they not only connect to the blood vessels and drink from it but actually look for quality blood vessels sometimes for a few minutes, while having complete control over what is going on inside the body. This feature allows the mosquito to scan large areas, relative to it, without pulling out the sting. The amazing part is watching the organ, which penetrates like a hard needle, move freely like that in real time.
