Vegetarian Mosquitoes

If everything was perfect in the Garden of Eden before the Fall, then what did the mosquitoes eat?

More people die from mosquito bites than from any other type of insect bite on the planet. Did mosquitoes bite in the Garden of Eden? Apparently not, because God originally described His creation as “very good”.  Disease and suffering would not yet exist before Adam and Eve brought the curse of sin and death upon all mankind.  So then what did the mosquitoes eat back then?

Most people aren’t aware that it is only female mosquitoes that feed on blood; males eat nectar from flowers. The female needs the hemoglobin found in blood to make her eggs. Interestingly, hemoglobin is also produced by some plants. Before the fall, it is possible that female mosquitoes fed on the hemoglobin produced by plants.

Someday, when Jesus returns, mosquito bites will not harm us. Until then, let every mosquito bite remind you of how sin entered the world, as all creation groans waiting for the time of Jesus’ return.
