Mosquitoes like this one (Anopheles quadrimaculata) are not generally dangerous to people on their own€”apart from irritating itches. However, mosquitoes are vectors for several deadly diseases, including malaria, yellow fever, and dengue fever. A vector is an organism that carries and transmits a germ or disease to another organism. Mosquitoes transmit these diseases by picking up a virus in one "blood meal" (like this one is enjoying) and passing it along in the next.
