If I ever find a magic lamp, I'll be hard pressed to think of better wishes than eradicating mosquitoes, ticks, and biting flies from existence.

Nothing new here..we've been dealing with these little monsters down here in Louisiana for years now.
The Asian Tiger Mosquito is highly attracted to DEET and is much more intelligent than its American counterpart. When three or more get together they've been known to be able to work tent zippers with ease.

We may have a lot of mosquitos in Alaska, especially this year, but at least they are relatively slow and dumb.

In the future, all life on earth will be mosquitos, zebra mussels and Norway rats. Plus the original invasive species: Homo Sapiens.
