Here is an excerpt:
Are mosquito bites a risk of
infection with HIV?
HIV is not spread by mosquitoes or other biting insects. Even if
the virus enters a mosquito or another sucking or biting insect,
it cannot reproduce in insects. Since the
insect cannot be infected with HIV, it cannot transmit HIV to
the next human it feeds on or bites.
