B. A new technology could help us eliminate malaria forever and possibly many others viruses to, but to do so we need to engineer a whole animal population C. Along with many other diseases that mosquitoes play host to. Malaria is one of the cruelest parasites on earth, and possibly the single biggest killer of humans in history. In 2015 alone, hundreds of millions were infected and almost half a million people died. D. If any of you don’t know malaria is caused by a group of microorganisms: Plasmodia, very weird microorganisms that consist of just a single-cell, they’re parasites that completely rely on mosquitoes.
Mosquitoes that spread Zika are active daytime biters, but they can also bite at night. Therefore, the mosquito net, a kind of cover sheet over the bed to keep mosquitos away at night, is not an efficient blocking method. Ironically, mosquitoes themselves become infected when they feed on a person already infected with the virus. Infected mosquitoes can then further spread the virus to people through bites. Scientists have discovered other ways of transmission for Zika virus such as sexual intercourse, including oral activities, from a person who has Zika virus to his partner even if the infected person does not show symptoms at the time.
Mites have been responsible for the collapse of millions of honey bee colonies over the past decade. For example, the invasive parasitic mite Varroa destructor is the biggest problem for honey bees worldwide. Over the past few decades, is has been spread out of southeast Asia and reached almost a global presence. The mites have responsible for collapsing a colony of 50,000 – 60,000 honey bees can be completely wiped out by a Varroa infestation in as little as 2 years. Mites cause damage to developing honey bees.
Mosquitos breed in water, and when they bite a person infected with malaria, they can spread the infection to other people. Symptoms of malaria include fever, headache and shivering. In severe cases, it can even lead to complications like pneumonia, severe anemia, coma and death. To prevent breeding of mosquitos and malaria, pooled water must be eliminated. You can also use mosquito nets and pesticides and practice good sanitation.
Children may approach them expecting a friendly creature and then it jumps towards their face with all the hatred in the world bunched up in such a tiny little body. The human and insect body structures and colors are so alike it should be hard to be anything but curious about the differences. Insects possess an unorthodox (to humans) body type called an exoskeleton. The insects abdomen is the most noticeable part of an insect. On bees’ is it their bright yellow and black bodies.
They said that they did not use the pesticide in the crops they cultivated but the other farmland nearby used the DDT. Then the DDT would flow to their farmland and killed their fishes, chickens, and the crops. The DDT has been producing disastrous side effects in wildlife species. Since the pesticide would store in the land for years, then indirectly affecting to the animals, such as birds around the area spread by the insecticide, some of the polluted birds would hatch those dead birdies, or the baby birds would even grow into a deformity bird. I was shocked when I read through these, because my pet duck died from swimming in the polluted river.
(WHO,2016). In addition, malaria is transmitted by female mosquitoes, when mosquitoes bite the human that happens, and they lay their eggs in the water because there is no choice, people just drink and wash from unclean water. Most of the people suffer from its symptoms until they die, due to many reasons such as lack of healthcare services, money, and housing. Women and children are the most common victims of malaria, affecting women through pregnancy and causing serious side effects on the child. Moreover, if they had the support, they would not have died that way.
Metamorphosis of a Rajah Brooke’s Butterfly Insects are the most diverse invertebrate animals on Earth. Insects mostly can move about by flying, walking or swimming. Focusing on flying insect for instance is butterfly is an important herbivore and pollinator (Homer, McMillan, & Fierer, 2014). Defenders of Wildlife (2013) stated that butterflies are known as brightly-coloured flying insects with various colours and patterns of two pairs of wings from species to species. Butterfly has many different species and one of them is Rajah Brooke’s butterfly.
Zika is a virus that a person can catch if bitten by an infected mosquito. First seen in Africa about 70 years ago, the virus recently has spread throughout the world, particularly in tropical areas where certain types of mosquitoes live. The main problem with Zika is its effect on unborn babies. In pregnant women, the virus can cause miscarriage, stillborn babies, or babies with birth defects. One serious birth defect caused by Zika is microcephaly.
