Strike at the Root

This weekend, I got eaten alive by mosquitos. I guess it's that season again.

I read somewhere that mosquitos have a lifespan of only a few days, like two or something. So to me, it's kind of stupid that the bites they give actually last longer than their short little lifespans. It should be that when they die, the bites they left behind should automatically stop itching and die away too. Like instantly. so if the mosquito gets you, and you smack it and kill it, you shouldn't have to suffer the pain and itch of the bite.

Or, even better, like werewolves or vampires -- maybe we could have mosquitos so that when you take out the original, the rest of them die. Someone should work on that genetic project and then let the rest of the mosquitos propagate it through the species. Yeah.
