    I think the whole attracting and killing thing is insane. I know we don’t want mosquitoes around us but trying to wipe out all the mosquitoes you can is stupid. Anyway the males are completely harmless, only the females bite. And they get blood only so they can reproduce and make eggs, they don’t do it for fun.

    Mosquitoes are living things too. It's sinful to even think of killing them. They have even more right to live and thrive because unlike us, they don't destroy the environment.

    6. They're terrible mothers who steal blood from other beings and force their children to drink the crud.
    7. Some people that hate only one thing in this universe hate mosquitoes, possibly rendering them the most hated organisms to ever walk the face of the multiverse.
    8. We don't have to wipe out all species of mosquito, just the ones that cause disease. Most species never kill you, they're just annoying thieves for the thrill of it. Wipe out the one or two species that carry Zika and Malaria, and we're golden.

    Am I the only one who thinks mosquitoes are NECESSARY? On a small scale they suck (no pun meant) but overall they are crucial in controlling the human population. How many people die from illnesses spread by mosquitoes per year? It's the same idea as trying to cure cancer or eliminate auto fatalities. Good for the individual, bad for the species. What if one day NO ONE was dying from those things? The human population is already getting out of hand. We really need things to thin our numbers, but I guess if things got too bad an even larger amount of people would just end up starving. Point blank, humans aren't struggling to maintain out numbers. The more people we have, the lower the average quality of life is.
