Do all mosquitoes spread dengue?

No. The Aedes aegypti female mosquito spreads dengue. Males do not bite or spread disease (in fact males cannot bite: they do not have the mouthparts to do so!) Another species, Aedes albopictus, can also spread dengue but Aedes aegypti is the main vector. Other mosquito species bite but do not spread dengue.
