some ppl actually have anti-mosquitobite itch genes.

Bites don't itch me until I notice them and/or scratch absentmindedly. And even then I can ignore it pretty easily. I also don't get huge welts or anything. Which is nice because apparently as O type my blood is more attractive to mosquitos? I feel I read that somewhere.

When does a mosquito bite get itchy? I just watched one hover around my arm, land, wander around for a few seconds before I guess biting me? I don't know if it did, I killed it as soon as it stopped moving. But anyway does it itch because of the fact that it sticks its mouth in you or is it only after it's sucked blood, or even later once it removes it's mouth?

When a mosquito "bites", it injects its saliva into you and the itch is an allergic reaction to the saliva. That's because the saliva contains anticoagulants to prevent them from getting stuck. If you let them finish feeding they will actually suck some of the saliva back and you might have less of a reaction.

Also, if you want to be gross you can pinch the area around the bite while they are feeding and trap them. Then they will have no choice but to keep feeding until they literally burst. However that usually leaves a bite that itches like crazy.

I also know how to find mosquito eggs, larva and pupae.

Mosquitoes breed and lay eggs around stagnant water that is preferably somewhat dirty. But more organic type stuff like dead logs and leaves. You can find the egg rafts at the edges of the water (or sometimes around logs and stuff) as small black things.

The larva live in that water and eat the food it provides. If you take a small white cup and scoop up water you can usually see the larva if they are present. They look like little gray tubes swimming around. Then they turn into pupae which look like little black commas. They don't actually eat but they do have to breathe, so most of the time they are at the surface of the water unless disturbed. The larva also need to breathe, so they will also swim towards the surface.

Mosquito Abatement involves checking lots of water sources for larva and pupae and then using poison food or a light oil like substance to kill them depending on which stage is more prevalent. Fogging an area is actually a pretty useless tactic because the mosquitoes actually have to touch the fog, but the fog dissipates fairly quickly.

What's the timeline from egg to adult and generally how long would they live? And why do you know this? Also I'm sure that there are many species but probably just a few that bug us. Are they the same throughout the world? LAST (sorry) where could I live to avoid them? Apparently Ireland, outside of Dublin, hasn't got any mosquitos native or not. I'd like to hope an isolated place like Iceland is the same, yet I know you get mosquitos in the northern taiga of Canada so clearly cold isn't enough of a deterrent.

It's not even mosquito bites that bother me, it's the buzz that incessant buzz as they fly around my ears drives me MAD. It's the worst thing.

Everyone's interpretation of quality differs so for you to be able to say the BEST 5 movies of your lifetime implies you speak on behalf of your own generations tastes and views on quality which will differ greatly from person to person.
