This Day-Feeding Mosquito Really Is A Tiger

Have you seen the Tiger? You may have noticed while looking down that the pesky mosquito you feel on your arm or leg looks a little different than in the past. This mosquito has a distinctly darker color and is marked by white stripes, where it got its name. But if you have the Asian Tiger mosquitoes, you may have also noticed a couple of other things—first, their bite packs more punch. Many people indicate that the bit of the Asian Tiger Mosquito is more painful than that of the old-fashioned garden variety mosquito.

You may not have noticed how aggressive these mosquitoes are and the fact that they are predominantly day feeders. We all get mosquito bites during the day but we know that most mosquitoes feed at dusk and dawn. These tigers are day feeders. They are also noted to be more aggressive. While some mosquitoes seem to be thrown off track by waving them away, the tigers have that distinct aggressive behavior which is the other reason for their name. Like other mosquitoes, this mosquito can carry diseases, including West Nile Virus. It’s important to know that not all mosquitoes carry diseases. Local health departments test diseases. If and when infected mosquitoes are found, the health department does a great job of alerting the public to be more careful.
