Mosquitoes cause more disease and morbidity than any other animal on the planet, and Bill Gates provides an informative article about the world's deadliest animal here. In honor of this day, I created a How to Guide to make felted mosquitoes.
Felted mosquitoes can be great tools used during community engagement because the soft materials and colors make insects more approachable to people who may otherwise be hesitant. Additionally, the enlarged bodies can be used to highlight mosquito anatomy.
For any non-profit, education, public health, government, training use, please feel free to download, use, and share this tool as you like- just keep the Bug Lessons information present in the bottom right hand corner. For any commercial or for-profit use, contact me directly for licensing options.
P.S.- I would love to see any mosquitoes you create, so please don't hesitate to send those pictures my way!
