HELP INDEX NEXT UP PREVIOUS FEEDBACK ATG Mosquito (Order Dipetera Family Culicidae)

The mosquito belongs to the fly family because it has only 2 wings. These wings which flap at approximately 300 times/second allow the mosquito to travel 3 to 5 miles/hour. The female wings create a buzzing noise which the males pick up with their antennae and that humans pick up as the female edges in for the bite. The female mosquito requires blood to develop tiny eggs in her abdomen and this can be quite an annoyance to those who share their habitat. MORE! [BM] {PF}
