An Anopheles Mosquitoes

The Most Dangerous Creature in the World

Anyone have any idea that which is the most dangerous creature in the whole world? Is it shark or snakes or crocodile?? No they are not. Here the size doesn’t matter to be dangerous. So, it is a Anopheles Mosquitoes. Worldwide, they killed more people since the Stone Age than those who have perished in wars and natural disasters. Malaria has been virtually eradicated in the developed countries, but it is still a major killer in tropical regions. Every year the disease causes as many as 2.85 million deaths throughout the world. Almost 75% of those who die are African children.

 Malaria swept from the ruins of Rome and took over the world. Malaria raped the Crusaders. It waited for the settlers in the New World. It assaulted American troops in the Pacific island of World War Two, a more terrifying opponent than the Japanese suicide bombers, and in Sicily, it took more lives than the guns. It has always been there, and it will always be there, causing its wracking chills, taking its horrific toll.  For over five thousand years, the total sum of recorded Human history, it has been the most dreaded and virulent disease this world has known. It has caused evolution, it has shaped history, it has murdered more people than any estimate can count.

    Centipedes

    How many legs do Centipedes have?

    The prefix centipede denotes one hundred, but most centipedes don’t measure up to this figure.  Half of the known species have only 15 pairs of legs, which means they have 30 in all. The centipede, irrespective of its species, starts life with about 6 pairs. The southern European species known as Himantarum Gabrielis has the maximum (171 to 177)  pairs of legs. There is also some usage this species in house. House centipedes are actually beneficial--they capture flies, cockroaches, and other small household pests. They never damage plants or household items. But few large kinds of centipedes can inflict a painful bite that may cause localized swelling, discoloration, and numbness.

    So, centipedes seldom need to be controlled unless they become a nuisance in the home. Centipedes are generally play a beneficial role in the garden. Their activities should be encouraged in the yard. Reductions in the number of household centipedes occur when their food source--other household pests--is controlled. Airing out damp places may help. Outdoors, centipede control is aided by the removal of debris as recommended for millipedes. Although some pesticides are labelled for controlling centipedes, their use is rarely justified.
