(Live Science)   Aside from man-eating sinkholes, Burmese pythons, swarming sharks, and tropical storms, what else does Florida have to offer? Oh, yeah, quarter-sized mosquitoes with bites that feel like you're being knifed. Orbital nukes last seen being made ready   (livescience.com) divider line 17

Here in Houston the mosquitoes get bigger and more numerous every year.  During the summer they're practically spraying for them every three or four days, breeding new generations more resistant to the bug killer every time.  The entire South is going to be overrun with mutated dog-sized vampire bugs by 2050.

fiddle-faddle: urger: Florida is America's attempt to build a death world. We put in hillbillies and astronauts and in a few centuries we'll breed them with Australians and our new Austro-floridian super soldiers will conquer the earth!

With all the Brazilians we are adding into the mix, we will be unstoppable.


Brazil can have 'em back.

Get bat drones. They can each eat thousands of skeeters every night.

skeeters

they already tried that..

The Bats all flew away the first night.

That would make an epic mud wasp colony.

It is!!


Exterminatus, then.

Very satisfied, would zap again.


I was thinking the same thing.... I have two of those rackets and they take out even large wasps with ease. These mosquitoes will just be another way of relieving daily frustration. Unlike those damn "no-seeums" that come, bite, and leave before you know there were there.

BigRightRear: FunkOut: Well, there's still citrus fruit I guess.

Funny you mention that. My tenet about where I'll live is :  ' If they can grow apples and tap maple trees I won't live there'. I am glad others will though.

The fact that there are mosquitoes here is not news.


Exactly, which is why my wife and I are considering relocating to Florida. We can deal with all that other shiat, but cold winters are flat out of there.

/NorCal is too cold...even though we grow citrus in our yard

I've got scars on my legs because of these farkers.

Normal Mosquito: "Oh, he has on a light cotton shirt. Guess I'll have to go elsewhere for my snack since I'll never get through that."

These Farkers: "He has on heavy denim jeans, socks, and leather boots.... I'm gonna get through all that or die trying! BONZAI!!!"

Glockenspiel Hero: AbiNormal: I've lived in Alaska, your puny Florida skeeters don't scare me.

Yeah, but Alaskan mosquitos are *dumb*. I remember being in the Alaskan woods and watching them land on our DEET soaked wool clothing rather than anywhere on exposed skin. Easy to swat and we ended up with very few bites.


Yeah, I lived in Eagle River, Alaska and I had some sort of "Mosquito Deleto" thing that served as a trap for the little bastards. It worked fine there, but where I live now it doesn't seem to work. I can't go in my backyard during the summer or I get bitten up by swarms of tiger mosquitos.

One species of deer fly in western Massachusetts must have evolved to drink blood from thick-skinned animals because it prefers to land on my backpack, camera, or other dark, hard surfaces. It knows there is food around, but fails to identify the pink surface as edible. The common species near Boston undersands humans just fine.

We're all going to die because there's a native Florida mosquito that comes in huge swarms of one, doesn't carry any diseases, and eats the larvae of the mosquitoes that do!
