    Why is female mosquito not considered a parasite? Please explain.

    Does a mosquito bite only humans & other primates? Or all mammals and birds? Please explain.

    The mosquito could not called parasite because it needs blood for reproduction not for nutrition. As we know male mosquito can survive on plant nectar, the female need high amount of protein for egg laying so it crave for blood.
    Birds, humans and animals are exposed when the mosquito bites to obtain a blood meal.
