  1. i moved to a house close to a lake. it have so many mosquitos on it…. its even worst when going to sleep. Any tip to give me? great video by the way 😀

  2. These super close recordings are just awesome! Though i can barely look at this episode. It’s my blood Mosquitoes, mine!

  3. I hate these fuckers, but this video made them really interesting. Still gonna smack them on sight, though.

  4. This is the coolest thing I’ve seen in recent memory, esp. the closeup shots of the mosquitos’ guts… is there something wrong with me? 😀

  5. I wonder how you got those shots so close to them, or even under the skin. Was it real skin or did you «fool» the mosquitos?

  6. I really really want to know how they managed to get that «under the skin» footage. That had to have been extremely difficult or extremely clever.

    • The video clips of the mosquito’s proboscis under the skin were filmed
      by Valérie Choumet and her colleagues at the Pasteur Institute in Paris.
      They filmed malaria-transmitting mosquitoes biting through mouse skin. You can learn more about their methods in their 2012 paper: Ссылка?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0050464

    • Hello there. We didn’t film that amazing video. The video clips of the mosquito’s proboscis under the skin were filmed by Valerie Choumet and her colleagues at the Pasteur Institute in Paris.

    • +hoogreg I dislike it when the media simplify something simply in order to get an eye catching headline. «mosquitos are the most dangerous animal on earth» is shameless clickbait and inhibits one’s knowledge of biology. The bank robbery analogy is not comparable and is therefore not applicable as the driver is an accessory and is fully aware that he is transporting and actively facilitating the robbery. The mosquitoes are however completely unaware of the transmission. That is why in autopsies, people are said to have died from malaria not from mosquitos. Think about it like this. If a man whom unknowing has aids, has sexual intercourse with a woman and transmits the virus and she later dies, would you say she died of aids and that the aids virus killed her or would you say the man killed her and that she was murdered?

    • +Weazel Cartoons I think you’re missing the point of my (far fetched) comparative example.

      Mosquitoes are unaware of them being a transport medium just like roads are. We don’t blame roads, so we should not blame mosquitoes either.

  7. So humanity has driven to extinction so many awesome species. Why can’t we all unite to get rid of this things from the planet?

    • we are not a virus. A virus is much more efficient than a human. We are just a successful organism that has colonized all aspects of this planet. Not a virus, a virus is localized, only reproduces in a host organism, and takes the host’s replicative machinery. We are by no definition, a virus.

    • Actually, cockroaches and capitalist roach-worshipers like you are the most worthless, pathetic scumbags to ever exist. They live and wallow in scum and filth. At least mosquitoes eat nectar and pollinate the earth… whereas cockroaches and capitalists pollute it!

    • +Br00tal Teutonic Thrasher666 They can survive nuclear blasts though?…that’s impressive …*respect brah*

    • Mosquitos are actually quite important to certain food chains. For example, birds, bats, and other insects rely on mosquitos as a source of food. They may just be a large nuisance for us humans, but for other beings, they are the key to survival.

  8. I hate mosquitos! They are pests that just spread sicknesses. It works well when you use VapoRub as a repellent, very recommended!

    • +id523 But it’s difficult to wipe out mosquitos. Well, not difficult, just very time-consuming. We can add a gene in them that only makes mosquitos give birth to males, but not females (Or something like that, I read the article a while ago), so that they can be eradicated as the gene spreads

    • bee sting has an acid called methanoic acid i believe , which can be nuetralized by rubbing any metal or applying a mild base for example baking soda

    • Hi Oscar. I produced this video. Good question. Scientists at the University of California, Davis, and the California Academy of Sciences, in San Francisco, let us film their arms being bitten by their uninfected research mosquitoes. You can see a photo of California Academy of Sciences microbiologist Shannon Bennett being bitten if you scroll to the bottom of this article I wrote to accompany the video: Ссылка
      Thanks for watching!

    • Hi. I produced this video. We were very lucky that mosquito researchers at the California Academy of Sciences, in San Francisco, and at the University of California, Davis, allowed us to film their (uninfected) research mosquitoes biting into them.

      Cheers,

  9. Can we just pause for a sec and salute the brave soul who let the mosquito suck his blood for the video?

    It was in the name for science!!!!

    • Mouse skin don’t look like that, and isn’t as broadly flat for a mosquito to stand on like that, even if you shaved it. A pig’s skin would be closer but still not on the ranks of human skin. Just look at those blood vessels.

    • Ummm, but you CAN feel the bites, I don’t know if Italy and South America have the same mosquitoes but I feel pain, to the point they sometimes wake me up and I can clearly see I just got bitten because of the tiny red droplet that later becomes an itchy place.

  10. I have never been so engrossed by something while simultaneously wanting to kill it with all the fire. Cognitive dissonance of the best kind. WOW.

    • Thanks, Eric! Glad you’re enjoying Deep Look and PBS Space Time. You might also like Gross Science if you’re into learning more about blood-sucking creatures.

  11. I wake up in the middle of the night, kill every mosquito in my bedroom, then I go back to sleep. I do this every night.

  12. Wait does that mean when you slap a mosquitos while its drinking your blood the needles could still be stuck in you? Ew

  13. «Hey look at those humans enjoying the outdoors! Lets ruin it for them!»
    *_-Mosquito_** -Wasp -Fly*

  14. That was an insanely awesome camera work! How did you film that under the skin footage? It’s unbelievable.

    • Thank you for the link! This is fascinating.
      And thank you for your work! I’m loving your videos so far very much.

    • Hi! The incredible researchers at the California Academy of Sciences, as well as the producer of this video, Gabriela Quiros, volunteered 🙂

    • Just a few reasons: they are a source of food for birds, fishes, and frogs. They also pollinate certain flowers.

    • there are about 3 or 4 types of mosquitoes that actually bite, if we got rid of them nothing would change and we would benefit.

    • actually there many of us and if we all lived soon the earth will be filled. so we need them to clear down the population.

  15. Why are mosquitoes what they are
    Also, side note, this channel is great! You cover some really interesting things here! Love it. I’ve subscribed. I wanna see more, haha

    • +TheyGoWhootnnn, No they are not. If they go extinct, there is a substitute for each and every one of there uses to mother nature. This is because the creatures that eat them also eat plenty of other species. In other words:

      -KILL IT BEFORE IT LAYS EGGS!!!!!!
      -KILL IT BEFORE IT DIES!!!!!!!!
      -KILL IT WITH FIRE!!!!!!!!

      No serieusly they need to be exterminated to extinction
