Why female anopheles mosquito feed on human blood?
Male (and female) mosquitoes feed on flowers. However, it is only the female mosquito which bites humans. "She" does this in order to obtain proteins from the blood plasma, which she needs for her eggs. (The male mosquito does not need these proteins, hence it does not bite the human.) Since the female mosquito is the only one being exposed to human blood, it is the only one which will transmit its contents, including malaria.

No, only the female mosquitos feed on blood. Mosquitoes primarily feed on nectar from flowers. Both males and females will feed in this manner, sucking the nect…ar through a proboscis, much the same as a butterfly does. However, the female is also capable of drinking blood, an act called haematophagy. Females do not require blood to survive, but they need supplements, such as protein and iron, to enable them to develop and lay their eggs. The female Mosquitoes do not actually "bite". They will actually pierce the skin with their sharp proboscis, injecting a mild painkiller as they do so, to numb the pain, and will then proceed to suck the host's blood.
Why female anopheles mosquito is responsible to transfer plasmodium in humanbeing and why not in the male?

Only female mosquitos take a blood meal, as they need to to produce eggs. With no males feeding, there is no chance to spread malaria. Female mosquitoes are the onl…y ones that need to gorge on blood in order to lay eggs.
insects. insects. insects.
Plant juices and fluids from trees is the food for male mosquitoes
No, male mosquitoes can feed on blood too, however, only female mosquitoes feed on human blood as this is needed to give birth to other mosquitoes.
because females need to get the blood for their eggs. the males only live for a week(unless they get squashed first) they have no purpose of living.
i want the diagram........................
Both male and female mosquitoes are nectar feeders, but the females of many species are also capable of drinking blood. Females do not require blood for their own survival, bu…t they do need supplemental substances such as protein and iron to develop eggs.Prior to and during blood feeding, they inject saliva into the bodies of their source(s) of blood. This saliva serves as an anticoagulant without it, the female mosquito's proboscis would quickly become clogged with blood clots. By this we can understand that your answer is no.
Female mosquito need blood for producing the egg
well the traditional job of the female mosquito is to collect the blood
females do so that they can give birth to more mosquitos( dont let them bite you)
No they do not and neither do the males all mosquitos EAT Your blood as it clots and mixes with their saliva. Mosquitoes feed on blood and it would be fair to say the method… used to feed on blood is by drinking. Only the female mosquito feeds on blood, she needs the nutrients to produce eggs. To get her blood meal she pierces the skin with her proboscis and locates a blood vessel, to help the blood flow freely she injects saliva which contains anti-coagulants.
Anopheles is a genus and they have both males and females. However, as with all mosquitoes only the females suck blood.
Malaria parasite can survive in the body of anopheles mosquito only. Reasons for this adaptation are genetic. Male mosquito does not spread the malaria, as it never bites the …animals, including humans. Female bites the animals, as it need blood for production of ovum or oogeness.
Sir Ronald Ross, who was born in India and British by nationality, discovered that female anopheles mosquito causes malaria. He called that mosquito as a mosquito with dappled… wings, as he was not a zoologist.
