Do mosquitoes offer any benefit to people?

The burden imposed by mosquitoes has stimulated jobs in the design, testing, manufacture, distribution and application of pesticides, anti-malarial agents, bed nets, window screens, and specialized earth moving equipment to reduce larval habitats.  Mosquitoes, mosquito-borne disease and pesticide-related issues are the focus of researchers, clinicians and political advocates.  Hence, mosquitoes provide the incentive for diverse kinds of jobs, products and services.

Finally, malaria and other mosquito-borne diseases have until recently effectively protected people who reside in certain malaria-endemic regions from the influences of foreign intruders - whether those are military, commercial or other kinds of interventionists.
