Please NO!

Please NO!, originally uploaded by Ontario Wanderer.

Last week Friday, December 5th, after spending at least 10 minutes scraping frost off of my car windows and then starting to drive down the road I saw an insect flying about inside my car. Yes, a mosquito. After doing some internet and book research I found its name: Anopheles punctipennis [anna-fo-leez ...punkt-ee-PENN-iss]. These mosquitoes live all over the U.S. and southern Canada and survive all winter as adults. They are most active in early spring and late fall. Sigh!
