Mosquitoes are significant insect responsible for variety of fatal diseases spreading worldwide. Every strategy to control mosquito population resulted trivial as mosquito borne diseases are still causing several million deaths annually. The present study is an attempt to investigate endogenous electric and magnetic energy emission of mosquito larvae with an aim to understand the role of energy field in evolution of their fundamental biology. It will enable us to understand how electric and magnetic energy involved in their development and survival over the years. These experiments include larval population of Culex quinquefasciatus, Anopheles stephensi, and Aedes aegypti. We have studied electric energy of mosquito larvae in-vitro with improved DEI Meridian Energy Analysis Device (DEI MEAD). Further, the magnetic field was assessed by Superconducting Quantum Interference Device (SQUID). We, therefore, could record here a significant bioelectromagnetic energy emission from the larvae population in comparison to control. Also, it was observed that with increase in larval population, their electromagnetic energy field grew stronger. It suggests that electromagnetic radiation may act as a phenomenon and in organizing the development energy field of mosquito larvae. Such endogenous energy field may indicate towards the concept of biofield in mosquitoes. It can be possible that the biofield facilitate and regulate biological functions of mosquitoes which may also be an indicator of external correlates of consciousness mosquitoes. This report is first of its kind in helping us understand the origin of consciousness in invertebrates.
