TED-Ed: The loathsome, lethal mosquito – Rose Eveleth


TED-Ed video:

Everyone hates mosquitoes. Besides the annoying buzzing and biting, mosquito-borne diseases like malaria kill over a million people each year (plus horses, dogs and cats).

Rose Eveleth shares why scientists aren’t sure. Lesson by Rose Eveleth, animation by Karrot Animation.
