These insects suck blood and also  inject some of it back  into the body. Mosquitoes get the germs by  sucking the blood of  someone suffering from the disease, and transmit them to others when  they puncture their skin or '!bitem  them. Houseflies are also caniers of germs of  intestinal diseases.
