This study focuses on the potential effects of microorganisms on mosquito behavior. Microorganisms play an important role in the life cycle of mosquitoes, which involves various aspects such as host selection, reproduction, and disease transmission. Microorganisms have direct and indirect effects on mosquito behavior by altering their host selection behavior, influencing their reproductive success, and participating in the disease transmission process. This study summarizes the existing experience and analyzes the multilevel regulatory mechanisms of microorganisms on mosquito behavior, while pointing out that there are still some limitations in the existing studies, which need to be further investigated in depth. Future research directions include optimizing eco-friendly mosquito control methods, assessing the feasibility and risk of genetically engineered mosquitoes, applying emerging technologies to deepen the understanding of the relationship between microbes and mosquito behavior, and focusing on the impact of climate change on this relationship.
