No, HIV can only be transferred through humans. All the rumours about insects being able to carry HIV are false! No. Since the beginning of the HIV epidemic This was of concern. Studies conducted by the CDC and elsewhere have shown no evidence of HIV transmission from mosquitoes or other insects and have concluded that insects do not transmit HIV.
