The Actual Mosquito Bite

Female mosquitoes hunt their blood host by detecting organic substances such as carbon dioxide and body odors we give off a large part of the mosquito's sense of smell is devoted to stiffing out blood sources. Prior to and during the blood feeding, mosquitoes inject saliva into the bodies of their victim, which is really creepy. This is done through a unique mouth part that the species has adapted to piercing the skin. As the mosquito drives her hypodermic needle through the skin, the saliva with anticoagulant is pumped down through the tube to prevent clotting is the blood is drawn up. The feeding process of the mosquito will persist as long as she is not disturbed. She will engorge herself with the victim's blood. In some cases the female can take up to 10 times her body weight in blood before leaving her unsuspecting victim. That little bump you get, is the leftovers from her saliva, her calling card, thank you for dinner
