Without all these,female mosquito can't produce eggs effectively and the only place to get these nutrients in high amount is from humans. 
Therefore,female mosquito needs to bite, pierce human body to extract blood for egg production and not as food.

Mosquitoes feeds on the general food of insects as they're of no difference to other insects around us like flies, butterflies etc which foods may include water, nectar from plants, and plants sap.
Summarily, only female mosquito suck on blood and not get nutrients for themselves but to grow their eggs.
