Too much knowledge sometimes can really lead to another thing,and perhaps thinking differently. Some people that are well read, are even saying there's No supreme being called "GOD". May God help us joor.

A Professor of Entomology at the University of Ilorin, Adeolu Ande, has decried killing mosquitoes, saying the insects are friends to humans that deserved to be properly managed.

Ande made the statement on Monday in Ilorin in a paper he presented at a public seminar organised by the university.

In his paper with the title “Consider the ways of Ants and be Wise,” the entomologist described insects as the “most successful and influential group’’ of organisms in the biosphere.

He said that humans had a lot to learn from insects in order to be wise.

“Human life is beset with inevitable associations with insects that have over the years influenced human destiny positively and negatively.

“Negative influences, such as disease transmission, crop losses, food spoilage, economic losses and nuisance value caused by less than 5 per cent of insect species have been exaggerated by man.

He said that positive influences of insects are not unappreciated and downplayed.

He listed some of them to include: pollination of flowers, waste recycling and sustenance of the ecosystem.

Others, he said, include source of silk, shellac, cochineal, therapeutic agents, aesthetics, biological control agents and food source.

The don said that man deliberately misunderstood the role of mosquitoes and frequently described them as causing the diseases they transmit.

He said: “in the actual sense, mosquitoes are equally sick but inadvertently and unwillingly convey pathogens that are the real causal agents of these diseases.

“The female mosquito could be described as an example of a true mother who is forced to undertake suicide mission in its bid to provide for its unborn children.

“The adult female mosquitoes have exceptional value for child raising hence the level of commitment and risk they take on the mission that entails decision between life and death.

“The after effect of this commitment is a well thought out plan that forestalls most of the factors that may stand in the way of raising good children.

“I am sure most human females will not take comparable decision in the face of similar attendant risks.

“It is however certain that children born after well thought out and risky conditions are better posited for quality living than those produced carelessly.

Ande said that mosquitoes had proved over the years that they are our friends and allies, adding that if we like them or not, they would exist and continue to source blood from humans.

The professor called for improvement in Zoology curriculum to ensure better focus on organisms that feature prominently around man.

He said that zoologists were expected to be the foster parents of animals in the Zoo, adding that they should be familiar with their needs and their health status

According to WHO statistics, there were estimated 214 million cases of malaria worldwide in 2015, and an estimated 438,000 deaths . Approximately 90% of all malaria deaths occur in Africa. In 2015, an estimated 292,000 African children died before their fifth birthday due to malaria.

Professor, this is the damage that Mosquitoes have been doing and you call them our friend?

Don't mind Prof, its like he has never had malaria before. Because anybody who has ever suffered from malaria will never utter this nonsense

I wonder when and how this generation of youth will learn, reading has become so difficult that we hadly make sense from any nonsense.
Prof Andy is an epitome of knowledge, he decided to open our eyes to what many had not paid attention to but ney, we are getting it twisted.
He said and i quote, learn from insects and ur life shall be good.
We need to appreciate this old man for opening our eyes to what we had failed to know. Mosquitoes bite is a suvival quest and man quest to get rid of them is, so, what is d ideal?
He said, we must learn more about these creatures that are more friends than foes.
God bless Ande
God bless fliers
God bless Nigeria

If we understand food chain, some animals have to feed on mosquitoes and some animals feed on the animals that eat mosquitoes to survive going to the animals humans consume.but saying we shouldn't kill them is overboard because they hurt us a lot and should be prevented with clean environment.
