Some insects are cute, some are scary, and some are just plain annoying! Here in Florida, people of all ages would agree that mosquitoes are the most annoying insects that find their way into our daily lives. Mosquitoes have a variety of factors and characteristics that add to their poor reputation. Some of the most annoying things about mosquitoes include:
1. Their Bite. Smaller insects may not have the scare factor that larger ones carry, but mosquitoes more than make up for that fact with their biting habits and the itchy bite marks they leave behind. Female mosquitoes need amino acids from human blood in order to produce eggs, which is why they’re so insistent.
2. Their Noise. Many mosquito-bite victims only notice their soon-to-be attacker because of the noise it makes. As these insects fly from person to person, the speed of their wings produces an annoying high-pitched buzzing noise. This sound serves as a constant reminder of the ever-present danger that mosquitoes present.
3. Transmission of Disease. This annoying insect can quickly become a dangerous predator. Because mosquitoes leave behind traces of saliva when they bite humans, they have been found to transmit a number of different diseases, such as dengue fever and West Nile virus.
4. Landing in Your Drink. Mosquitoes may become overly excited when trying to land on their next victim, and on the other side of the battle, humans try to swat these insects away before they can bite. As a result, mosquitoes commonly land in inconvenient places—including beverages.
5. Forcing You to Go Inside. These insects can quickly put a damper on any type of outdoor event or celebration. If guests are worried about the mosquitoes, then they may want to go inside to avoid receiving bites.
