I have in-laws in Alaska, inside the Arctic Circle and they laugh at these and say they are nothing. Supposedly they have mosquitoes up there that can bite through a coat!! They have to be brutal to survive in that climate, and I didn't even know that mosquitoes could survive in the cold, but apparently our little Tiger Mosquitoes are not the baddest on the block?!?
The pathogenic Mycoplasma used to be very innocuous, but biological warfare research conducted between 1942 and the present time has resulted in the creation of more deadly and infectious forms of Mycoplasma.
Researchers extracted this mycoplasma from the Brucella bacterium and actually reduced the disease to a crystalline form. They “weaponized” it and tested it on an unsuspecting public in North America.
The mosquitoes were then let loose in certain communities in the middle of the night, so that the researchers could determine how many people would become ill with chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyalgia, which was the first disease to show.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. — If mosquitoes were motorcycles, the species known as Psorophora ciliata would be a Harley-Davidson — big, bold, American-made and likely to be abundant in Florida this summer.
