Wild Life in the City #4 - Mosquitoes

π‘΄π’π’”π’’π’–π’Šπ’•π’π’†π’”, have been around since the Jurassic period. That makes them about 210 million years old! They can spread several diseases, as it travels from person to person. This female Aedes mosquito (in the video) is just starting to feed on a person’s arm.


The bumps from bites are caused by saliva. Most people have minor allergic reactions to the saliva, which cause the bite to swell and itch.


To prevent mosquito bites and disease spread, ECOMY reminds everyone to clean gutters and downspouts, also empty water containers!
