It seems counter-productive to celebrate the mosquito, which is known world over as a pest and in some cases, a pestilence. But today is National Mosquito Day, and there is no denying that the Libraries has some interesting titles on this pesky, even dangerous, insect.
In the Biodiversity Heritage Library, one can read about the mosquito vs. the dragonfly.
At the African Art Library a video of the story Why Mosquitos Buzz in People's Ears, can be enjoyed.
Parlez-vous français? Visit the Anthropology Library and check out Langue mosquito; grammaire, vocabulaire, textes. Maybe not directly about the bug, but the coast, but still intéressant.
For some more practical information, the American Mosquito Control Association publishes Mosquito News, which can be found at our Museum Support Center and Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute library locations.
