Do Mosquitoes Have Teeth? No.

When one hears the word ‘bite,’ one would automatically think ‘teeth.’ Mosquito bites, however, do not involve teeth. As a matter of fact, mosquitoes do not have any teeth. “So how do they pierce the skin of humans and animals,” one may ask. Anyone who has ever had blood work done should have a good idea of how mosquitoes bite. Mosquitoes are no different from syringes. Basically, mosquitoes use a body part called the proboscis to pierce the skin and extract blood. They extract blood the same way a Medical Technician would when extracting blood for tests. They siphon out the blood through their proboscis.

A mosquito’s proboscis has more than one use, of course. As mentioned above, mosquitoes use their saliva to prevent blood clots, so that they can drain out blood from their hosts with ease. Mosquitoes also use their proboscis to inject their saliva into the incision, prior to siphoning out the blood. This way, the can drain the blood from their hosts without trouble.
