Best Answer

When mosquitoes bite a person they secret saliva mixed with plasmodium, at the same time they suck blood, they enter the blood stream, enter the red blood cells, multiply inside the cells which causes the breakdown of the RBC's, this mechanisms produces fever, depending on the type of infecting parasite the fever will be every 2 to 3 days.

Mosquitoes bite you to suck the blood. The female require the same for ovulation. In the process, the insect at times bite the patient of malaria. The malaria parasite enters the stomach of the insect. Growth of the parasite takes place there. The parasite travels to the salivary gland of the insect. When the mosquito bites the next victim, the parasites enters the body of the victim. They go to liver. They multiply there. Then the parasites enter the blood stream. They enter the red blood cells. Again they multiply there. When the red cells burst to liberate the parasite, you get the fever with chills. The parasites invade the fresh red blood cells. And the cycle is repeated again and again. Some of the parasite undergo modification to become male and female gametes. When the mosquito sucks the blood of the patient, these gametes enter the body of the insect. They unite there and travel to salivary gland. The cycle continues.The parasite remains infective for life time and infect many victims.
