Do You Know the Deadliest Animal in the World?

Author: Mosquito Squad of Waukesha County & Milwaukee North Shore

Most people guess that the deadliest animal in the world would be sharks...or lions...or snakes...some even guess humans! But if you base your judgement on how many people die from this specific animal each year, the most deadliest animal is the mosquito! No other animal comes close to the death rates inflicted by this creature.

Bill Gates posted a blog with the numbers of people killed by numerous animals many had thought would have been top rated. The results posted were surprising.

There are over 2,500 different species of mosquitoes. During peak time of mosquito season, they outnumber every animal besides the ant and termite population. Mosquitoes are responsible for thousands of deaths per year. Mosquitoes carry deadly diseases such as Zika, West Nile, Encephalitis, and Malaria.
