There is a lot of disagreement on this topic. Some scientists think there would be relatively no effect, others are more concerned.

As it turns out, there aren't that many species that use mosquitoes as a primary food source. You'd think there would be a lot - frogs, spiders, etc. But the reality is few of these, if any, can be proven to eat mosquitoes as a primary food source. They are more of a minor, side source.

As a result, I'm for knocking them out completely. They transmit a ton of disease and really aggravate me. I'm willing to roll the dice.

As far as I know, there has been a debate going on about this. Some say they will simply be replaced by some other insects in the ecosystem and some others say that we can never know for sure.

Probably, because numerous species of animal feed on them and their larvae, including several species of fish.

That is a great question, I used to think the same with houseflies the pesky things but as annoying as they are they are needed to help with the breakdown of waste I think mainly the larvae do this. Now wasps on the other hand are irritating I have never been stung until this year where I was stung twice in two weeks. Surely there are enough stinging biting things around now to be able to eradicate these???

Hi @kimor, Out of 3500 species of mosquitoes, only three are more harmful. These are Anopheles, Culex and Aedes. Extincting them may put a HUGE dent on the earnings medicine and medical industries. ;)

But save other people money which they can use for other things....
