There is a popular saying that if there were no mosquitoes there would be no malaria. This is true, mosquitoes are blood feeders. If they happen to bite an individual harbouring some malaria parasites, they suck up these micro-organism together with their blood meal. Inside the stomach of the mosquito, the parasites develop to the infective stage.  When the same mosquito, in search of blood, bites a healthy person, it transfers these parasites into the new host.
