About Me

I have done a lot of things in my life and have also worked in many different jobs to make a living and to experience life. This blog is just some of my musings, sometimes funny, sometimes inspirational, sometimes sad, sometimes angry, sometimes simple but all the time, it's just me.

Mosquito Invasion

There was rain, then there were mosquitoes.

There has been a huge mosquito invasion around the housing area where I leave.

Every day, I become a killer, I kill at least 20-30 mosquitoes.

Irritating little buggers.

Where did they come from?

I do not see any water clogges areas, then again, they could have come from across the road. Where there is some construction of a petrol station, the one with the yellow and red sign of a sea creature.

There are some clogged areas across the road as well as nearby areas.

Due to this, everyday, my vegetarian and harm no creature self has had little choice but to kill 20-30 mothers, sisters or wives.

Males live for about a week, feeding on nectar and other sources of sugar.

Females will also feed on sugar sources for energy but usually require a blood meal for the development of eggs.

After obtaining a full blood meal, the female will rest for a few days while the blood is digested and eggs are developed.

This process depends on the temperature but usually takes 2–3 days in tropical conditions. Once the eggs are fully developed, the female lays them and resumes host seeking.

The cycle repeats itself until the female dies.

While females can live longer than a month in captivity, most do not live longer than 1–2 weeks in nature.

So, anyway, apologies to all the husbands, sons and borther mosquitoes. Your female species left me little choice.

I just hope there is no dengue outbreak.

I have already called my land owners as well as Miri council but let's see, maybe I need to pay for things to be done faster.

Take care and be well.
