what's the point......

of mosquitos?

I was talking to SP the other day about mosquitos and wondering what purpose they have in this world. God created all things and I just wondered what he was thinking when he created mosquitos.. Do they have a purpose that I am just unaware of?

The things I know about mosquitos are:
  • They make this highly annoying buzzing sound late at night when the light is off, buzzing around and around my head - this drives me totally nuts.
  • In order to sleep well if there is a mosquito flying around my room at night, I have one objective before I can possibly go to sleep - KILL THE MOSQUITO!
  • I am paranoid about getting bitten by mosquito's. In the summer I put on enough rid to repel mosquito's for me and everybody in a one mile radius of me, BUT I still get bitten!
  • Mosquitos love me. They bite me a lot. Fe Fi Fi Fum I smell the blood of an English women.
  • Not only do mosquitos bite me but when they have drawn my blood I get the biggest red mark, not a normal small bite mark.
  • When mosquitos bite me it itches like mad.
  • In some countries you can get malaria and west nile disease from mosquitos.

In conclusion, I don't like mosquitos very much and I am wondering if anyone knows if they do anything other than annoy me and give me itches and big red marks? Do you know what the point of mosquitos are?

My sister and I were having this discussion the other day! I have no idea, but there must be some point.

One of my children asked me a simliar question this summer. Ummmm....I don't know. They feed the local bats?

My youngest got bit by a mosquito on the eyelid one morning before Bible study. I think she was about 1 and a half. Her eye swelled up and looked like she had been beaten. Poor abused child!

I don't know what the purpose of mosquitos is (or cockroaches, for that matter) but perhaps they were less annoying before the Fall?

I am sure you are right Lara, must have been less annoying.

I was supposing that the best use for mosquitos isto feed bats and spiders but as to why God made them, I have no idea.

When I was a little girl my whole arm would swell from a mosquito bite. The dr. had my mom give me one of the B vitamins. He said they wouldn't like me so much. When i was pregnant and taking vitamins they didn't like me so much either. My suggestion, find out which B vitamin they don't like.

There is some disagreement on whether it works or not but it was vitamin B-1 (thiamin).

Thanks Martha, you know heaps of cool helpful stuff. Maybe that's what happens when you become a Mum.

Thanks for the tip, will let you know how I go... Come to think of it, I hear bananas are meant to stop mozzies biting you so much?!?!? Unfortunately they are soooooooooooooo expensive at the moment that I won't be able to give them a go just yet.
