The family Culicidae (stinging mosquitoes), to which Aedes communis belongs, is found almost all over Europe, in North America, Asia and Japan. Allergen exposure occurs through bites and possibly via fragments in dust. Aedes is a genus of mosquito originally found in tropical and subtropical zones, but has spread by human activity to all continents excluding Antarctica. The mosquitoes are a family of small, midge-like flies. A few species are harmless or even useful to humanity, however, most consume blood from living vertebrates, including humans. Various species of mosquitoes (and in particular, the females) act as vectors for a range of diseases, and transmit some of the most harmful human and livestock diseases. Most of the proteins in mosquito saliva are allergenic in humans; up to 19 allergens have been found in mosquito salivary gland extracts. Traditional allergy tests utilize the Skin Prick method (also known as a Puncture or Scratch test) to determine whether an allergic reaction will occur by inserting possible triggers into your skin using a needle prick. If you are allergic to the substance, you are forced to suffer through your body's reaction to the allergen.
