mosquito larva eats microplastic

mosquito eat plastic

英國研究發現,蚊的幼蟲會食用微膠粒,而且一直到成蟲都會保存在體內。當這些蚊被其他捕獵者如鳥類、蝙蝠、蜘蛛等食用後,會進入其他動物的體內,再進入到食物鏈的更高層。很多日常清潔用品、磨砂產品,都含有無法被污水處理系統過濾的微膠粒,從而影響整個生態系統。

UK researchers discovered that mosquito larva eats micro-plastic, and these plastic would stay in its body even after it reaches adulthood. these micro-plastic would then be transferred to predators that feed on mosquitos, like birds, bats, spiders, etc., and into the other level of the food chain. Micro-plastic is used in many daily cleaning and scrub products, and these plastic could not be filtered by the sewage treatment system, so they will enter the threatened the entire ecosystem.
