Can Ants and Mosquitoes become extinct?

There are a lot of Ants and Mosquitoes on the planet I think that it is not possible for such a race to become extinct.

      May 28 2013: I don't think so that they will become extinct that way! Can you give some example of some other species which was spread all over the earth and become extinct due to evolution?

        Try the Homo Habilis.

It's not so much that there are so many of them, though that helps, but that they have proved to be amazingly adaptable. Ants are found in just about every climate and environment on Earth, and there are tens of thousands of different types. They'll be here long after humans are gone.

    What about Trilobites then ?
