The family of female Aedes aegypti mosquitoes that spread dengue disease is increasing. This season is favorable for its growth. Before biting, the Aedes aegypti mosquito releases saliva on that area. Due to which the part becomes numb, after which it bites. Dr. Girish Maheshwari of the Department of Entomology at St. John’s College, Agra, who has done many studies on mosquitoes, said that over time, mosquitoes have made many changes to protect themselves. The number of Aedes aegypti mosquitoes has increased in the last few years. This mosquito breeds in clean water at a temperature of 20 to 40 degree Celsius.
Aedes aegypti larva becomes an adult in a cup of water. Dengue is also spread by Aedes aegypti. During pregnancy, the female needs protein, which she gets from human blood. In such a situation, only the female Aedes aegypti bites people, the male does not. It bites during the day and can fly only 50 to 60 meters. This is how the infection spreads when a female Aedes aegypti bites a dengue infected patient, then the dengue virus reaches her body, this virus multiplies. When it bites a healthy person, the virus reaches the person’s body through saliva.
