FLAMINGO, FL - AUGUST 12:  The a female mosquito begins to bite the photographer's hand at Everglades National Park August 12, 2002 in Flamingo, Florida. The female bugs use the blood protein to feed their eggs then lays the eggs in water. The itch from the bite is caused by the human body's immune system responding to the mosquito's saliva.

Traps are put up throughout Flamingo where 250,000 mosquitoes a day are collected.  (Photo by Tom Ervin/Getty Images)
