Culex mosquitoes are the main vector for Japanese B – Encephalitis. They prefer dark color and are long distance fliers. I'm looking for something new for new year and this is the first one I saw. Googled for something nice to say and I'm quoting fron net source "As part of their useful role, the larvae of mosquitoes live in water and provide food for fish and other wildlife, including larger larvae of other species such as dragonflies. The larvae themselves eat microscopic organic matter in the water, helping to recycle it. Adult mosquitoes make up part of the diet of some insect-eating animals, such as birds, bats, adult dragonflies and spiders. They also help pollinate some flowers, when they consume nectar." - http://www.mosquitoreviews.com/mosquitoe...
