NotARocketScientist: Nogale: DNRTFA, but I'm always in favor of killing mosquitoes.

This.
I'm generally a live and let live person, but mosquitoes should be killed whenever possible.


Question is, if this large a number is killed on a constant basis, what happens to everything that feeds on them? Wouldn't that likely have a further ecological impact of making their food supply smaller? I'd think the impact down the food chain would be pretty huge.
