Get to know the different biting insects better.
Culex mosquitoes are the predominant mosquitos in mainland France. There are many species including the Culex pipiens or common mosquito that we all know. Most Culex subspecies prefer to bite birds rather than humans or other mammals. They are therefore often considered to be less dangerous than the Anopheles or Aedes mosquitoes. However, they can spread serious illnesses like West Nile fever or Japanese encephalitis.
Tiger Mosquito (Aedes albopictus)
There are approximately 260 species of Aedes mosquitoes on the planet. The Aedes mosquito takes its name from ancient Greek, which means "unpleasant", and which is justified by the very strong nuisance caused by this kind of very aggressive mosquito with a painful bite.
The Anopheles mosquito
Among the 3,500 existing mosquito species, there are approximately 430 species of the genus Anopheles. Very feared, the Anopheles mosquito is the mosquito capable of transmitting malaria.
Ticks are mites that have existed for around 140 million years. There are more than 800 different species. Known to parasitize pets (especially dogs), they can also take humans as their host. Ticks can transmit serious, life-threatening diseases. Men can also develop allergies to their bite, even when they are not infected.
Sand flies are very small insects that look like small midges. They are susceptible to transmitting serious illnesses.
Appearing 65 million years ago, flies have always been a nuisance to humans throughout its history. The word fly is a generic word that designates a large number of very different species of insects that are found in the orders of Diptera (ox or horsefly, housefly, tsetse fly), ephemeroptera (mayfly) , hymenoptera (gall fly), beetles (fire fly), hemiptera (pissing fly which is a bug) or even mecoptera (scorpion fly).
