Dude you got  chikungunya.
Don't get that chikungunme!

So it's a "new" mosquito that's been here for over 30 years. Stop the presses! Roll out an Extra Edition!

I don't know if its this variety of mosquito, but in SE Asia, the mosquitos tend to be really, really small and fast.  They're also not as loud as their North American counterparts.  And so it's hard to kill the little bastards.  And they do multiple bites.

I get goose bumps thinking about those tropical skeets.
 
2013-06-27 01:52:02 PM  
I am pretty sure I have been bitten by these things on many occasions...  I have noticed the white stripes on some mosquitoes...   I did not realize that I was living through hell.

FTFA:

You can try and swat it all you want, but once it's on you, it doesn't let go.


That seems normal to me. I don't think I've ever seen one let got after I swatted it.........

I usually have to wipe them off.

I love how it has "invaded 26 states" but they can't be assed to list the states, or even link a list of the states. Another trip to google to fill in the blanks in another almost useless blognews article.

Subby should be fisted in the genitals. And then set upon by tiger mosquitoes. Presuming they are in his state. Which we can't farking find out from the article.

You don't really know mosquito pain until you've been to the Alaskan/Northern Canadian outback. First time I saw a cloud of them I literally ran away.

oh yea well you don't know anything about pain... You don't know anything about pain until you've seen your own baby drowned in a tub... And you definitely don't know anything about how to wash a baby.

Yeah, welcome to the South.  Take some Off and quit whining.

/get the Super Deep Woods kind, it's like 40% DEET.

The mosquito has killed more human beings than every war in human history combined.  Sleep tight.

Neongoats, after having talked with your doctor, we've agreed that upping your dose of Zoloft would be best at this time. If you continue feeling the need to fist people in the groin over poorly written internet content, please let us know so that we can adjust your medication levels again.
 
2013-06-27 02:09:48 PM  
Huh. Just swatted one of these this morning. Never had seen them before. Suckers hold a metric arseload of blood.

True is that. I recently went camping in the deep woods near Charleston  SC and I felt like I might be in a secret recreation of The Hunger Games. I kept hoping someone would parachute me in some kind of magic mosquito salve.
 
2013-06-27 02:10:54 PM  
Look on the bright side: this invasion of absurdly agressive, expansive, infectious mosquitoes will mean the elimination of anti-vaxxers from the American gene pool!

Part of its success at spreading throughout the world is due to a warming climate

The coastal lowlands of NC demand the 98% DEET that Sawyer and Cutter sell.

You know it works because the warnings take up most of the label on the bottle.

A friend of mine has a bottle of stuff she bought in Senegal to spray on the netting around her bed. It's so strong that skeets which land on the netting fall over dead. We have no idea what it is but we assume it's illegal in this country and we only use it when the skeets are threatening to carry off the tent with us inside.

We've had these striped bastards in GA for a long time. You can try to squish them when they land on you, but you generally just piss them off...
 
2013-06-27 02:16:03 PM  
Those things have been in S. Florida ( The Everglades ) for years. Seems they arrived about the same time as all the 3rd worlders that turned Miami into the sh*thole of the East Coast. Coincidence......?

That happened to me on Assateague Island on the MD shore, what saved me was as they were carrying me away, one said to the other " you know, If we bring him back to the swamp, the big guys might take him away from us..."

Yeah, the ones on Assateague Island are pretty bad too. I once jumped on a wild pony to get away from them. That didn't work out well.

That Sign used to be a personal totem of sorts of mine.  But after camping there for years I always felt that biting and kicking waran't nearly as bad as the fact that those buggers are basically 5ft tall, 1,000lb raccoons when it comes to getting into your coolers and food supplies.    I've seen an assateague pony use his hoof to slit the screen on a tent, walk inside, and then use his nose/lips to work the catch on a cooler, nuzzle it open and devour the Cap'n Crunch box inside (while ignoring the chherios right next to it...picky little bugger)

I find the most effective way to get rid of a cloud of mosquitoes feasting on my body is to taze myself. Take that you little shiats!
