Mosquitoes as Biological Weapons on World War II

Mosquitoes have been considered by many as a threat since many cases of its deadly bites like Dengue Fever, Malaria and the like have been widely proven. But in some aspects of life, the Nazis have considered mosquitoes in as a useful tool for biological weapons during World War II.
Research has been conducted at an institute in Dachau on how long could mosquitoes infected by Malaria disease live long in certain territory of an enemy. The Dachau Entomological Institute was built on January 1942 led by Heinrich Himmler. During the time of war German soldiers are prone to typhoid and they were alarmed for having a typhoid epidemic in their camp.
The main task of the institution is to find cure on insects that are transmitting this kind of sickness. On the other hand, Dr. Klaus Reinhardt said that the institution was built in order to make further studies on making biological weapons for the war. Researchers found many types of mosquitoes in the year 1944.
The studies showed that these insects have different life spans whether they could survive in a long time from a breeding area to the place where they will be dropped. The Anopheles mosquito was been considered as strong enough to infect Malaria disease to people.
Throughout the Second World War, Adolf Hitler had activated and reigned over the utilization of biological and chemical weapons as forms for mass destruction. The research by Himmler has been proved of no use and of little value at the end. After all it was said that the studies done were only for Himmler’s personal benefits. The research of Nazis’ has also been made ridiculous.
