What does the male mosquito eat?

Answer from: Olesya N.:

Male mosquitoes are cute. If you kill a mosquito brazenly devouring your blood, rest assured that it's a female "taking care" for her future bloodsuckers. The males of all species without exception drink the nectar of the flowers. Beautiful, isn't it?

The male mosquito needs only flower nectar. From its carbohydrates mosquitoes synthesize glycogen, which stores energy and is actively consumed during the flight. This takes place in a special organ called the fat body.
And the mosquito has already received most of its food in the form of moths. It's usually something tasty in the ooze, animal or vegetable.
