Mosquitoes belong to the order Diptera, a group of insects that only have one pair of wings, located on the mesothorax. The hind pair is reduced to small, drumstick-like organs, the halteres. Diptera can only take fluid food, sometimes in the form of blood. All species go through a complete metamorphosis in the life cycle.
