I would guess male mosquitos are also carriers.. they just don’t bite!
True…”Malaria is transmitted among humans by female mosquitoes of the genus Anopheles. Female mosquitoes take blood meals to carry out egg production, and such blood meals are the link between the human and the mosquito hosts in the parasite life cycle.” ~ taken from http://www.cdc.gov/malaria/biology/index.htm
True: the infection is only carried by the females.
That is true!
I am going to say false. I don’t see why male mosquitoes can’t infect people also it’s not fair that only the females get to infect with disease!!!
And the answer is …
Only the female Anopheles mosquito can transmit malaria.
(Source: cdc.gov/malaria/faq.htm, November 2008)
is only the female that transmit maleria
Not ladylike at all!
