13 Mosquitoes Mosquitoes Spanish for "small fly," mosquitoes are flies that have been known to cause various diseases . A sample of diseases caused by mosquitoes: malaria, yellow fever, Chikungunya, West Nile virus, dengue fever, filariasis, Zika virus .

THIS. THIS ANIMAL BUZZES IN MY EARS WHEN I WAS TRYING TO SLEEP AND ANNOYS THE HECK OUT ME WHEN I'M MINDING MY OWN BUSINESS! I'm not scared of them, but they annoy me to no end. Think spiders and sharks are deadly? They're nothing compared to this. It spreads all kinds of deadly desease. There's nothing interesting about it either. No unique abilities, patterns, color variation, body shape variation, etc, nothing special at all. And it's EVERYWHERE. One of the very, very few animals I hate and is my least favorite animal - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

These little pricks ( pun intended) are everywhere! And they buzz in your ear too! Thank god the East Coast doesn't have a mosquito problem ( well... The northeast... )
