Welcome to another edition of “Did You Know?”!!!
Did you know that only female members of mosquito species seek out a blood meal? Did you also know that mosquitoes can feed on nectar and other sugars? It’s true!
Female mosquitoes usually require a blood meal to procure the necessary proteins and iron to develop their eggs. So if you’ve ever been bitten by a mosquito, that mosquito was female and is going to lay her eggs very soon.
