Do Female Aedes Aegypti Mosquitoes Do Not Bite At Night?
Hello doctor, I want to ask if yes if the aedes aeggypty mosquito does not bite during sunset and at night, thank you doctor Thank you warahmatullahi wa barokatuh
Female Aedes aegypti mosquitoes do have a tendency to actively bite / suck blood in the morning-afternoon, where Aedes aegypti actually becomes very active at 2 hours after sunrise and 2 hours before sunset. However, the Aedes aegypti mosquito can actually bite at any time, including at night, it's just not as active as the times stated above
Who is bitten / sucked by the female Aedes aegypti not only humans, but also other mammals such as dogs, cats, monkeys, etc. As for why only female mosquitoes bite / suck blood because it is needed to ripen their eggs and also to get food apart from fruits, whereas specifically for male mosquitoes food needs are obtained from fruits.
