Some diseases transmitted by mosquitoes are:
* Dengue fever * malaria * yellow fever * West Nile virus *
Eastern Equine Encephalitis In fact, that makes mosquitoes the
deadliest living thing on this earth, totaling the most deaths a
you can get:
dengue fever from the aedes mosquito
Yellow fever from the culex mosquito
malaria from the anopheles
West Nile Virus and malaria are diseases spread by
And you can also get Yellow Fever!!

(West Nile Virus,etc.)
Malaria and West Nile virus
There are a number of diseases that can be transmitted by mosquito.
The big ones in history have been malaria, but in the United States
these days the high-profile disease is West Nile Virus.
Since the mosquito is a blood-sucker, the mosquito can pick up
almost any kind of blood-borne disease and transmit it to another
Some mosquito borne diseases include Malaria, Ross River virus and
West Nile Virus.
It depends on the location, and breed of mosquito. Despite common
beliefs, mosquitos do not transmit diseases like HIV or other STDs
from person to person. In Africa, Malaria is commonly transmited by
mosquitos, but in the United States, West Nile is common.
Mosquitoes are a blood-sucking insect, they can become infected
when biting an infected animal, bird, or human; they then spread
parasites or virus on when they bite another animal (dogs, cats,
cows, horses, pigs…), wild and captive birds/fowl (crows, pigeons,
ducks, chickens…), or humans. The simple mosquito is one of this
worlds most dangerous living creature; they can live and travel
about anywhere (especially warmer climates), and they are can
spread disease from species to species. Not all mosquitoes bite
humans, there are those that are drawn to other species.
Mosquitoes can carry and transfer a number of viral and
parasitic diseases to Dengue Fever, Malaria, St. Louis
Encephalitis, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, West Nile
Virus/Encephalitis, and Yellow Fever). Mosquitoes are notorious
for spreading heartworm to dogs. The symptoms caused by a viral or
parasitic infection that is spread by mosquitoes, depends on the
type of infection.
For example: A potentially fatal disease 'dengue' (only
carried by female mosquitoes).These type of disease carrying
mosquitoes can be identified by the black and white zebra-like
stripes on their body.Symptoms of this disease are severe headache
behind the eyes vomiting , diarrhea, red-spots on the skin and a
high fever. These symptoms are noticeable after five to six days
after a bite.
A mosquito can give you a disease called "malaria".
Humans can get Malaria, Ross river Virus, or Dengue fever
or brain damage
Mosquitoes spread malaria, and a virus known as the triple E virus
WEST NILE FEVER
I don't know all of them but Encephalitis, West Nile Fever, Dengue
Fever, Malaria, and Yellow fever are carried by mosquitoes.
West Nile Virus
Mosquitos spread the disease like malaria, filaria and dengue
Anopheles albimanus mosquito feeding on a human arm. This
mosquito is a vector of malaria and mosquito control is a very
effective way of reducing the incidence of malaria.
The principal mosquito borne diseases are the viral diseases
yellow fever and dengue fever, transmitted mostly by the Aedes
aegypti, and malaria carried by the genus Anopheles.
Though originally a public health concern, HIV is now thought to be
almost impossible for mosquitoes to transmit[citation
needed]. Mosquitoes are estimated to transmit disease to more
than 700 million people annually in Africa, South America, Central
America, Mexico and much of Asia with millions of resulting deaths.
Methods used to prevent the spread of disease, or to protect
individuals in areas where disease is endemic include Vector
control aimed at mosquito eradication, disease prevention, using
prophylactic drugs and developing vaccines and prevention of
mosquito bites, with insecticides, nets and repellents. Since most
such diseases are carried by "elderly" females, scientists have
suggested focusing on these to avoid the evolution of resistance -
Cj adapted from wikipedia
The most common disease that mosquitoes spread is malaria. Although
mosquitoes also spread other diseases like fliaria, dengue, brain
fever and yellow fever.
# five different kinds of Malaria # Yellow Fevour # West Nile
I believe it is called west nile
Malaria and West Nile virus.
