Mosquitoes: There are very few people who are able to identify the mosquito that is about to bite them. Most bite in the very early morning or early evening and use of an insect repellent containing deet is helpful, as is sleeping under a mosquito tent. If you really want to learn about identification of female mosquitoes i suspect that indian colleges have courses on insects. Good luck and stay healthy.
