Why do mosquito bites itch?

When a female mosquito bites you, she pierces the skin with and sucks blood. You usually don't feel it while it's happening because mosquito saliva contains a topical analgesic. It also has proteins that cause an allergic reaction in most people which causes bumps and itching. The really treacherous aspect of mosquitos is their ability to spread disease by transferring blood between mammals. We don't have any home remedies for disease vector control but we do have some time-honored remedies for dealing with the bumps and itching.
