For starters, there are more than 2,000 species of mosquito worldwide – estimates range from 2,500 to 3,500 or more. More than 150 of those species can be found in the U.S., and 60 of them can be found in North Carolina alone. But they're not all bad guys. Only 10-15 of the species found in North Carolina bite people.
