Why Only Female Mosquitoes Bite
Hi Guys, well I’m quite sure that you’re wondering how come it’s just female mosquitoes that bite. Well, this is more than true. There are a few reasons why only female mosquitoes bite.
They need way more protein in their diets, and protein can be found in blood (loads of it). Now I know you’re wondering why they need protein; they need protein because it gives them enough energy to produce eggs, as they lay up to 100 eggs at once, which is a lot.
The male mosquitoes are a lot smaller, because they do not suck blood; they just feed on nectar.
