Scientists have discovered another danger of mosquitoes

(ORDO NEWS) — Mosquitoes are not only extremely unpleasant, but also dangerous insects. Especially if they live in some exotic places, for example, in Africa.

Here is the Anopheles coluzzii species from Côte d’Ivoire, it turns out, it carries pathogenic bacteria on its paws, like flies.

But whether mosquitoes can infect humans with these bacteria is not yet clear. This issue was investigated by scientists from the University of North Carolina in the United States.

Biologists examined 79 adults of Anopheles coluzzii for microscopic living creatures. They found fructobacilli, which are commonly found on flowers and in hives.

In addition, we managed to find staphylococci and two variants of rickettsiae. These microcreatures can cause serious diseases in humans.

The scientists now hope to continue their work to find out if mosquitoes can infect bipeds.

Most people react to mosquito bites quite safely – this place only itches for a while. But there are those who are seriously afraid of these insects.

In them, a mosquito bite causes an allergic reaction, up to nausea, vomiting, or Quincke’s edema, which can result in suffocation.
