Do you know, what really grinds my gears?
Yes, those little suckers are deadly. In fact they are the most lethal species, deadlier than shark, lions, or any other animal for that matter. In fact all animals combined would not match the harm that mosquitoes make.
Check this video /infographic /or should I call it videographics? (ah, new term!!). The video lists most lethal animals who are responsible for human deaths. I was waiting for the twist & the surprise; and I got one. I thought, humans kill most humans (murders and accidents), obviously. And I thought, they would miss including the humans in the list of animals. But I was stunned at the end.
Mosquitoes are dangerous; and I want to get rid of those. Ah! who doesn’t want to get rid of them? All of us, right? Except you might not know what mosquitoes are if you are living in colder regions of developed countries.
I hope you all remember, Mr. Bill Gates opening the jar of mosquitoes in TED talks. Well, that did the trick, I think. Many labs are working on mosquito borne diseases such as Malaria, Dengue, Chikunguniya
There are experiments that could prevent mosquitoes to reproduce, but what are the consequences of eradicating the entire species is unknown and dangerous.
