The mosquito's a clever little bastard. You can track him for days and days until you really get to know him like a friend. He knows you're there, and you know he's there. It's a game of wits. You hate him, then you respect him, then you kill him.

Does the mosquito even serve a beneficial purpose?  What would be the cost/benefit of its eradication?

I live in Florida.  We have trucks that spray populated areas with stuff that I don't want to think about but keep some of the mosquitos away.  But, truthfully, I'd be perfectly happy with a dozen drones overhead every day if I never saw another mosquito here...

Plato's Salty Discharge: Does the mosquito even serve a beneficial purpose?  What would be the cost/benefit of its eradication?


Benefit: literally millions of saved lives and billions of improved outings.
Cost: some species would have to change their diet a little.

I'm in.

Arm them with that anti-mosquito laser and we're good.

Yes, I'm sure it's just that simple.

Love that sketch. "There's nothing more dangerous than a wounded mosquito."

I went with the Skeeter Vac. I'm not overly impressed yet.
