    You've been an NLLMB member for two years and this non-NLL-related post is your first ever post?

    I haven't followed the link yet (I can't) and am not sure that I want to because, at first sight, I suspected this was spam and/or some type of virus.

    You might want to post some more relevant stuff to give us a sense that you aren't some nefarious entity. I won't follow that link until then.

    I hope you convince us that you are OK. :)

    It's literally what it says it is. Kind of odd... but at least it's not spam. :confused:

    Is this guy eligible for Rookie of the Year? He's been on the board since 2010, but his first post was this year...

    Well it's definately of the Aedes genus. Species is harder to tell without a microscope. Probably just cantator as it is the most common in the States and Canada but because of it's dark color and tinted wings it loks alot like albopictus. If that's the case, fishman10 could be in for a heap of trouble as that is a native SE Asian mosquito that has invaded parts of eastern North America in recent years. It carries many diseases including Yellow Fever, West Nile virus and Encephalitis.

    Also it's female (males have "wiskers" and they don't bite...they are just alive to reproduce the species).

    Now see if you can guess what one of my summer jobs was while I was in college.

    Yellow Fever: That was a good Hot Tuna album!
    I recommend Hot Jelly Roll Blues or Sunrise Dance With The Devil.

    This made me uncomfortable. How do you let that dirty flying hypodermic needle draw your blood for two whole minutes, it's almost instinct to swat the thing for me. I get eaten alive by mosquitos worse than most though.
