Are mosquitoes important to the earth?

    Many believe that mosquitoes only spread disease and have no ecological purpose, but in fact they do. Mosquitoes serve as important sources of food for frogs, bats and other animals that eat insects. Mosquito’s larvae that grow in ponds also provide an important source of food for tadpoles, minnows and other species that live in ponds and small lakes.

    Mosquitoes also serve as pollination vectors for some plants. This is not as common as with other insects, but mosquitoes are known to pollinate Cattleya orchids among other epiphytes.
