Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People’s Ears?

Mosquitoes are one of the most hates and deadliest creatures in the world. No other creature in the world causes as many deaths as a mosquito. But that is why the mosquito is feared NOT hated.

Humans largely hate the mosquito because of its buzzing sound that it makes in peoples ears there by being an irritant and disrupting a good night sleep.

So Why do mosquitoes buzz in your ears?

The answer is that mosquitoes do not intentionally make the noise to annoy humans, their wings simply make that annoying buzz or whining sound whenever they fly.

As they fly nearer and further than your ears in search of where to bite and feed they keep making louder whining sound that irritates humans.

While the sound is not intentional but rather a reality of their nature, Mosquitos also use the sound they make to identify a possible mate.

It’s important to note that the buzzing and irritating sound humans hate actually comes mainly from the female mosquitoes!

While both male and female mosquitoes buzz with their wings, male mosquitoes do not suck our blood so they are less inclined to look for humans to bite. Instead, they look for fruits and flowers to look for nectar to feed on.

The annoying sound is therefore often from a female mosquito as it circles your body in search of where to bite and feed off your blood. Needless to say, the female mosquito is the one that normally transmits diseases to humans.
