Article Excerpts about Insect-borne diseases

By shuttling bubonic plague bacteria from infected rats to humans, the lowly flea helped usher in the Black Death, the infamous pandemic that killed one-fourth of Europe's population during the 14th century.

Mosquitoes are the worst offender, with malaria and other mosquito-borne diseases killing millions of people each year.
