    Adult female Anopheles
    Anopheles is a genus of mosquito which is dominant to transmit malaria in humans. There are about 460 mosquito species identified. Only 30-40 species spread Malaria. Currently the main Mosquito habitats are tropical areas, but there can be malaria cases reported elsewhere. The mosquitoes go through four stages in their life cycles: egg, larva, pupa and imago.
    These mosquitoes transmit a protozoa parasite which brings out the disease in humans. Plasmodium vivax, plasmodium falciparum, plasmodium ovale and plasmodium malariae  are the common parasites of the disease out of  which plasmodium falciparum is the most dangerous.
    When it comes to control of the disease by transmitting the susceptibility of malaria vector to insecticides is an important factor.
