But, the female mosquitoes inject their saliva before sucking our blood. So that it acts as a anticoagulant that dissolves blood clots for the mosquitoes safety. We experience itch when histamines in our body try to fight the protein left by these mosquitoes.
It’s pretty obvious now that the diseases spread from the saliva the mosquitoes leave in our body. So, would anyone of us can allow this to happen to us or our loved ones? It’s essential that we can educate our little ones about the seriousness in a mosquito bite and keep them safe from these infectious and life threatening mosquito bites.
