Do mosquitos serve a purpose?

0

Of course they do. Believe it or not, and as annoying as some creatures can be, everything in this world… both plant and animal serve a very valuable purpose. It all goes back to the food chain and when you take something out be it a producer, consumer or decomposer the chain will collapse and life will die. In the case of mosquitos there are many animals, mainly bats that rely on them greatly for food. Some species of bats can eat over 500 of them an hour. One could argue then why not take out mosquitos and bats, bats as well serve just as important of a role if not more so than mosquitos. Some even help to pollenate plants just as bees and some birds do. Aside from bats many aquatic species that also rely on them for a food source due to the fact that mosquitos are laid, hatched and semi-raised in water. As tiny as they might be they also pollenate some plants.
