The rising toll of casualties caused due to mosquito related diseases such as malaria and dengue testify that human beings are the most preferred preys for mosquitoes. So, despite the prevalence of mosquito killers in several parts of the world, it is seen that there is no end to the mosquito problem.

So what makes human beings the most desirable of the lot for mosquitoes? The answer is quite simple, human beings to mosquitoes is what food is to us.
