It is really amazing to see today's mosquitoes so clever...! Really!!!
It seems all of them go to some 'on-the-fly' university to learn all their buzzing and stinging techniques...first it was Malaria and now it is Dengue, Zika, Chikungunya, etc...We try to control the spread of one disease and Lo there is a new virus / bact to deal with!
See..some of the things which mosquitoes are capable of doing nowadays when compared to mosquitoes of yore are...
- Location of bite is inversely proportional to your physical reach. That is, they will bite you in a place on your body which is tough to reach by your hands...like for instance the back of your elbow, or the back of your thighs - while you are seated. And you will definitely not be spared if you are wearing a transparent kind of outfit, as it is easier for them to get you from the outfit.
- If you luckily have a mosquito swatter electric bat in your hand, then the clever ones keep flying very close to your body as they are somehow aware that you will not zat yourself with the bat; or they fly very low to the ground as it is difficult to zat them on the floor! Clever, isn't it?
- Also the Gen X mosquitoes don't seem to be affected by any of the Good Knights, Mortein and All Outs...! Period! I guess they have their own research labs where vaccines against these are provided on a national scale similar to the Polio vaccine drive in the human world!
Also why I tell University is, all human behavior is somehow kept track of, researched and an antidote is made ready against each of our defenses.
