LIFE STORY OF A MOSQUITO Foul Environment [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 28 December 1939

. LIFE STORY OF A MOSQUITO Fpul{ Environment Mosquito life begins in the foul en vironment of stagnant water. Fa voured breeding places are cesspools and exposed collections of sewerage, but any accumulation o£ evil-smelling putrid water will do equally well. Th0 .eggs, stuck together to fornii rafts 'and laid in lots of about 100 at a time, float on the surface of the pol luted water until the heat hatches them into larvae (wrigglers) ; these soon change into pupae from which tho full-grown mosquito vampire emerges and flies away to suck your| blood and mine. The period of incubation from the egg to the full-grown blood-sucker oc cupies only from 12 to 14 days, so that one pair of parent mosquitoes can pro duce in a - single season billions and billions' of 'the pests. It is horrible to think of 'the vast quantities of Austra lian human blood that goes to the gorging of these pestilential blood suckers! But the chief danger of the uiuttijuit.u is uiui iix bucKiug tut: uiuuu it inje...
