Dengue fever is not caused by mosquitoes. They merely serve to spread the fever. Dengue fever is caused by any one of the four dengue viruses spread by mosquitoes that thrive in and near human lodgings. When a mosquito bites a person infected with a dengue virus, the virus enters the mosquito. When this carrier or infected mosquito bites another person, the virus enters that person's bloodstream and that person is affected with dengue fever.
