Enjoying the Warm Weather? So Are the Mosquitoes

Have you ever wondered why you don’t see many cold blooded animals, like reptiles or insects, in frozen regions of the world? Heat allows animals to run, jump, and think and mosquitoes are no exception. The warmer the temperature (up to a point), the more aggressive and hungry they get. They also reproduce much faster which means that surges in temperature can mean big surges in mosquito numbers.
