Humans will sleep better, meaning they'll wake up refreshed and not have to rush to work because they're late. This will result in a drop in CO₂. Why yes a mosquito did keep me up until 2 am, why do you ask?

My cat did the same to me. I recently moved house, so now she has to stay indoors for a week or three. Which means she yowls absolutely non-stop, from around 11 pm to around 3 pm, and her staff gets no sleep. But I wouldn't suggest we wipe out cats. :-)

As far as I know, mosquitoes form part of the diet of bats. But they're so small one has to wonder whether bats really need them.

There is nothing that I am aware of that only eat these pesky things.
In its larval form, the mosquito is an important staple of many small fishes (the unusual plural has the biological implication of denoting more than one species of fish). The mosquitofish is an excellent but disappointingly obvious example. The single obese goldfish that I've recovered from a virtually enclosed rainwater tank is a more surprising but less typical example.

This just means we need to GM some syrup-sucking mosquitos.

EDIT: That have a natural fear of humans.
