    Well, David Quammen had an interesting argument years ago: he said that mosquitoes are essentially the guardians of the tropics. The super-abundance of mosquitoes in the tropics, and the diseases they bring, has caused a lack of human development, and hence resource exploitation in the topics, saving the rain forests. Also, mosquitoes are a huge pollinator in the tropics as well as many other environments, further helping plants reproduce.

    What other planet could they live on? Earth is the only planet known to have life.

    Mosquitoes have been living on Earth longer than Humanity. How does that make you feel. A mere little insect is actually more powerful than any human.

    there is atmospherearound the earth. so earth has rains. so naturally water gets stagnated and mosquitoes have a chance to breed by laying eggs in the stagnant water. so there are mosquitoes on earth and there are human beings their hosts for providing mosquitoes with blood. so when there is food and chances of breeding, mosquitoes can live on this earth.

    Like most parasites, their job is to kill off the weak animals. Its the great web of life, my friend. What would the bats and frogs get to eat if we didn't have so many mosquitos?
