Not all mosquitos suck blood, some of them eat fruit juice or other mosquitoes' larvae.

Elephant mosquitos are some of the only mosquitoes in the world that eat juice. They also eat other species of mosquitos' larvae. Elephant mosquitoes are known to eat mosquitoes' larvae that are dangerous to humans. They can eat up to five thousand larvae when they too are in the larvae stage.

The way that baby elephant mosquitoes eat larvae is that they shoot out their heads, and stab the other larvae. All of this takes about fifteen milliseconds. The elephant mosquitoes are helping humans because they kill many of the mosquitoes that carry diseases. In North America, elephant mosquitoes can be found in any of the southern states.
