Displayed at the Florida Museum in 2022, this gallery exhibit uses stunning images to swat away myths about these divisive insects and display their fascinating behavior and value to ecosystems. Learn about their role as pollinators and food as well as about mosquito research at the University of Florida’s Medical Entomology Laboratory. Panels also inform visitors about the insects’ anatomy, life stages, feeding habits and how a changing climate might affect where they are found and disease transmission.


This exhibit was made in collaboration with Lawrence Reeves and the Florida Medical Entomological Laboratory (FMEL).
