    In tropical Africa, the female anopheles mosquito is known to be the transmitter of plasmodium which causes malaria. Malaria is a very serious ailment in the sub-sahran region. Culex mosquito is also the cause of elephantiasis. So far tick is not known for any serious disease except that it may cause discomfort to its host and possibly, another disease pathogen can gain access into the host’s inner body through the sores from their bites.
