    Big mosquitos.

    Of course, it's the little guys inside (viruses) that do the damage. Too bad the little buggers can't be seen or guarded against, except for squashin' the skeeters as they approach. Bummer, that they're nearly silent. Stealth mosquitos ... Grrr-rrrr.

    Yeah, vectors are dangerous. Certainly not worth casually dismissing.

    ... or was of the Alaskan arctic mosquito variety.

    Everyone should visit Alaska at least once. You gotta see 'em to believe 'em.

    The west nile disease is not something to make light of. Some of the people it did not kill can disable them in a lot of ways. I lost my older brother from west nile in 1993 after being in the hospital for a month, which two weeks of that was on life support. If they don't get a handle on the situation it could grow a lot faster than it is. West nile is far from a major killer but mosquitos can give people other diseases.

    I once read an article that accused the author of "Silent Spring" of being the greatest mass murder in history as the book led to the DDT ban, which incidentally, is the best mosquito pesticide.
    Arguably that was one of the first instances of "Junk / Extremist Science" prior to "Global Warming". Raquel Carson became a celebrity. Thousands die in Africa. West Nile is very serious here in the USA.......

    Saw a crew chief mistakenly fueling one up on the ramp once. Alaska may have a short growing season but they sure grow them big.
