A crisis in search of a solution. Just another hand wringing panic for do-gooders to come to the rescue.

Mosquitoes are part of the natural selection process. We need them for population control.

Take your Vitamin B complex. The mosquitoes have not touched me in years.

Chewing tobacco does similar. It also keeps ticks and some people away.

I also do the B Complex though and feel like it works for mosquitos.

So you are pulling a Tabitha.

Go ride your hobby horse somewhere else.

I remember being in Florida 25 years ago and the screen door fame was so covered in mosquito’s in the evenings it was hard to tell what color the frame was. And now they say something changed and they thrive there now?

Must not be able to find the doors now.

Exactly! Beware of Greeks bearing gifts, and Progressives working to save you! In its entire history, Zika was never known to cause microcephaly. Once Bill “reduce the population by 90%” Gates started a biotech company and performed mosquitoe experiments in Brazil it seems to be commonplace...

DDT. Crisis averted.

Oh.

That’s right.

Can’t use DDT.

I think the author is confusing introduced species with native ones, and is conflating adaptation of these introduced species to new environments with “global warming”.

He also is ignoring illegal aliens and other visitors as sources for these diseases.

The yunggins don’t think quite right nowadays.

The worst part is foreign mosquitoes doing the disease spreading that American mosquitoes won’t do :)

Or is it simply American mosquitoes getting it by sucking the blood of diseased foreigners. There was qa time when immigrants had to undergo very rigorous medical examination and testing, submitting to internment and quarantine for a period long enouh to ensure the individuals were not disease-bearers. If they were, they were not admitted at least until after being free of it. Including iontestinal flora. I bet.

Why not now?

The point I was making is that they are not in a new environment but one where they have been for a very long time.

What does that has to do with evolution, devolution or little green men?

Wow! Mosquitos in Washington, D.C. Who knew? /s

The writer should do a little research in the Yellow Fever Epidemic in Philadelphia in 1793.
