Why do female mosquitoes seek blood?

Female Mosquitoes

Among well-know mosquito facts is the fact that the female is the one who seeks blood. It should be noted, however, that mosquitos do not feed on blood but rather require it for successful reproduction. The female mosquito needs the protein found in blood for the development of her eggs. Otherwise, like the males, they are content to eat nectars and various plant juices.
