Little Green Zombies

0r more like Snow White?

I have resigned myself to the fact that there is not going to be an Indian Summer this year… but although my winter clothes are now in my closet and my shorts are put away that is not the craziest thing happening! Animals in the northern hemisphere are beginning to seriously think about hibernating. The fluffy and chunky bears, with all their extra insulation, are getting ready to start their deep energy conserving sleep. But what about animals that don’t have that protective layer of fat …like frogs? 

Bloody mosquitoes

More, much more food ...

The ‘Little Fly’, was reported as early as the 16th century. 

Mosquitoes thrive in warm temperatures above 80 ⁰F (around 27 ⁰C). At less than 50 ⁰F (10 ⁰C), they shut down for the winter as they are cold-blooded insects. The adult females of some species (there are 3,500 different species) find holes where they wait for warmer weather, while others lay their eggs in freezing water and die. The eggs hibernate and the lavae hatch when the temperature warms up sufficiently.
