Mosquitoes are not just summer pests whose bites cause victims, young and old, to scratch the resulting bumps and welts. Increasingly, they are threats to the public's health. Mosquitoes belong to the family Culicidae and there are about 2,700 species, worldwide, with approximately 150 mosquito species in the United States. Of these 150 species, approximately 50 are found in New Mexico, including the Genus Anopheles, a possible carrier of malaria; Aedes, a dengue fever carrier; and Culex, which can carry West Nile virus. To help advance the health of humans and animals, authors Theodore A. Wolff and Lewis T. Nielsen recognized the need for an up-to-date species identification guide.
