Pollinator of the Month

Mosquito

Family: Culicidae

Many people do not realize that mosquitoes are pollinators. Male mosquitoes do not ingest blood; instead they feed on nectar from flowers. During this process they will often pick up pollen and transport it to other flowers, resulting in pollination!
