Fact of the Week: August 6, 2014

Mosquitoes are responsible for killing more humans than any other animal.  They have killed more people than those who have died in war.
Mosquitoes transmitting malaria kill 2 million to 3 million people and infect another 200 million or more every year. Tens of millions more are killed and debilitated by a host of other mosquito-borne diseases, including filariasis, yellow fever, dengue and encephalitis.
