When a mosquito bites, it pierces your skin and draws blood with the tip of its strawlike mouth, or proboscis. In the process, the mosquito injects some of its own saliva, which contains an anticoagulant that prevents your blood from clotting around the proboscis therefore it causes an itching sensation.

Because they inject an enzyme into your skin
