Can humans get Heartworm s from mosquitoes?

Yes humans can get Heartworm s from mosquitoes, but the Heartworm s don’t usually circulate to the heart, as they do in pets. Instead, the larvae encyst in the lungs or eyes. Fortunately, Heartworm infections in humans are rare, but it’s one more reason to make sure your pet doesn’t harbor them.
