    Hope it doesn’t bite!

  2. Too cute and funny. Did you smash him?

      No, my hands were busy on the steeromg wheel. I simply opened the window and let it blown out. We had some people contracted the dengue fever this summer right in the area where I live. The disease is carried by mosquitos as you know. It was the first time in many many years for it to spread here. How it got here is still a mystery. I knew about it, but the mosquito in the car looked so innocent. πŸ™‚

      • Isn’t it sad that something so innocent looking can carry such a dreadful disease! Like we need one more thing to worry about in this crazy world.
        Stay safe. and next time, GET HIM!

        The disease carried by the mosquito causes severe pains but rarely fatal. But Ebola fever is. A Canadian journalist flew here recently after visiting W. Africa via London was suspected of contracting the disease. Fortunately tests conducted on him found him to be negative. But for extra precaution he is still confined at a hospital near where I live. It’s the same hospital where I rushed into two years ago when I had an asthma attack. I wrote and posted about it on the blog. If you remember you gave me a kind comment on it. I’m still treated on the asthma and just yesterday I went there to see a doctor. I found everything quiet there, but suppose the journalist had been tested positive of contracting the Ebola virus. It could have been world news. What a relief!

  3. Yes, I’ve noticed a few indoors here, but they are harmless ones.

    Even parasites like mosquitoes need protection.

    It might have come in the protective encasing of car’s interior.

    I saw one in the house a couple of days ago – UGH!

    • AshiAkira says:

      They are supposed to go away when it gets gold. Your house must be so well heated they want to stay through the winter. πŸ™‚

      • RoSy says:

        Warmer that it is outside. But – I really should find somewhere nice & warm to move to for life. These winters keep getting longer & colder each year.

    They’re often attracted to the saucer under flower vases, where water collects. Or old tires, if you live near an urban area. It’s the female mosquito, and only ever so briefly she seeks human blood to feed her kin. Yes, they do carry parasites and all sorts of infectious diseases. But it’s a matter of being exposed, and have a certain balanced attitude towards the perceived dangers of the natural world/. We humans at the root of their overpopulation, of course, and cause more harm to this planet than a tiny insect cold manage. But I too squash them if they get near my own kin. Guess one day I’ll have to pay it all back. Best.

    • AshiAkira says:

      I always think that every creature on the planet plays some importan role in our life cycle as a whole. I can’t help doing the same thing though by reflex when one of them flies near to me. πŸ™‚
